Reminds me of that line from this song: snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0IagRZBvLtw This is Harmony, doing her I can balance snowflakes on my face trick.
Emily was diagnosed with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare aggressive tissue cancer. This Tinker Bell -loving superhero endured 71 infusions, 58 chemotherapy treatments, 28 radiation treatments, 53 overnight stays in the hospital, and 14 cycles of treatment for 43 weeks during treatment. We’re so thrilled to have Emily as one of Iolanthe’s Kids. Special thanks to Scott Dobek for the gorgeous custom name keychain and to Jo Basford for the Enchanted Forest postcards. Emily’s hat was spun and knit by Alison out of Sunny’s fiber, with one of Marian’s gorgeous hand-felted flowers in Tinker Bell’s peridot.

This little sweetheart named Layla loves cats, horses, zebras, Rapunzel and Belle (how cute is that?) and finds our alpacas to be adorable ;) Special thanks to Scott for Layla’s beautiful gift, and to Michelle R. from my office for the My Little Pony Unicorn. Layla’s hat was spun and knit out of Harmony and Faith’s fiber by Susan. Special thanks to 1M4A for sharing Layla’s story.

Nathan is one of Iolanthe's first kids and here he is, sporting his new wristband. His Mom Melissa writes: Nathan was excited that HE got mail today! He loves his bracelet and thinks the post card is pretty funny. He's going and growing strong 4 years cancer free!! Thanks for thinking of him even after all this time! Thank you, Nathan (and you, Melissa!) for the awesome photo! <3 You can see Nathan wearing his hat, here: http://iolanthealpacas.com/ikids/?p=4243 #ChildhoodCancerAwareness
Back in August, The Truth 365 posted this photograph of 12-year-old Maesen, who has been fighting neuroblastoma for seven years, 4 months and has relapsed twice. She is a spokeskid for children battling cancer and such an inspiration. I reached out to her Mom to see about making Maesen one of Iolanthe’s Kids. Maesen’s hat was spun and knit by Alison out of Sunny and her sisters’ (Hope and Maylea) fiber. She was gifted with a Secret Garden Coloring Book from the artist Jo Basford, a beautiful custom-made keychain by Scott, a supersoft pink unicorn, and some Finding Dory gifts for her siblings. In this gorgeous photograph, you’ll see Maesen is wearing a Talia’s Legacy tee shirt. Maesen was friends with the sparkly-eyed teenager who inspired quite literally hundreds of thousands of people via her facebook page, and millions more from her appearances on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Talia completely stole my heart. I love Talia’s awesome answer to Ellen’s question “How do you stay so positive?” — it inspires me daily. Iolanthe’s Kids are my superheroes. I’m working on a special project for Talia (it’s not quite finished yet), as she will always be in my heart and will forever be an honorary one of Iolanthe’s Kids (more on that to follow). Thank you, Maesen (and Rachael) for honoring Talia and for all you do for all the kids battling cancer. You’re amazing. xo
I thought it might be fun to put together answers to a few of our frequently-asked questions. Much more information, including stories about Iolanthe's Kids, our alpacas, our Goodybox Project, and much more may be found at our website: http://www.iolanthealpacas.com
