Iolanthe’s Kids: Hines

Meet Batman. 😉 Err, Hines. Future Crime Fighter. Current Cancer Fighter.

He is 2 years old, fighting Stage IV Neuroblastoma. You can follow him on Facebook at Hope for Hines. The hat he’s wearing is out of Harmony + Faith, spun by Mikie and knit by Gloria. xo

Iolanthe’s Kids: Nicole

Tonight I received a message from Nicole (“love the hat”) with this photo of her modeling it for us (she is *such* a doll!) Nicole is a vibrant, wonderful, and incredibly insightful 13 year old fighting Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Her hat is a one-of-a-kind with embroidered lavender flowers on the sides of it (fiber by our sweet Summer, spun and knit by Lora).

On her FB page, she posted something that forever altered how I feel about life:

“I am not worried about dying, what I am worried about is not living.”

If only we all thought that way and made the most of each day.

Pure inspiration alert: Here’s what Nicole is up to now.

Nicole would LOVE to meet Ellen DeGeneres and get on the Ellen show. If you (yes, you!) can help make her dream come true, I will forever owe you. You can follow Nicole’s journey on Facebook at Team Nicole. xo, M
