Iolanthe’s Kids: Brooklyn

Beautiful Brooklyn is 8 years old, battling Ewing’s Sarcoma. Her Mom, Kim, said B was very happy to get her goodybox — she loves animals so we sent her a special cuddle sloth (from my dear friend Carolyn); and a gorgeous print made by the fabulous Steph Laberis. Her custom keychain was created for her by Scott Dobek of the Dusty Newt. B’s hat was made out of our Ice Cream blend (JJ, Summer, Love, and Harmony); spun + knit by Alison. Special thanks to Craig Cameron, Jr. for sharing B’s story.

Please go show Brooklyn and her family some facebook love at her facebook page LuvforB.

Iolanthe’s Kids: Ruby

Meet Ruby.

This sweetheart was diagnosed with Embrynol Rhabdomyosarcoma (soft tissue cancer) on April 17, 2015. Her Mom, Christine, writes: “Hi Myla!!! She loved everything ! That hat is so great and the pictures. Well, we fell in love ! The alpacas are so precious! And the keychain and coloring book. She loved it all! Thank you so much! What a generous and amazing gift! You’re organization is so wonderful.”

Thank you Christine, and thank you Ruby, for the sweet words and the beautiful photo! We’re all so glad you loved your goodybox! Ruby is holding a picture of Sunny, the alpaca whose fiber (along with Harmony’s) made her hat, which was spun and knit by Alison.

Special thanks to the Rally folks for sharing Ruby’s story.
