Meet Baylee!!!

Today I have a real live hero for you to meet!

Her name is Baylee.
She is in first grade.
and she has beaten cancer.

I am so impressed by her story, and by her sweet mother.

When Baylee was going through treatment she lost her hair.
Now we all know that while having hair is nice, it's not what makes us beautiful.

Baylee's momma wrote some books all about it.

Here they are:

 They have started a foundation for kids with cancer,
it's called Brave, Bald, Beautiful LLC

please take a minute and read her story,  learn about the hair fairy,
and donate if you can. 
I did!

Now here's where I come in!
Baylee's cousin contacted me and asked me to draw up some graphics to go along with the book, so she could create a companion book review. How awesome is that???? What an honor to be included in a small way :)
Here are the bundles I made:

I love this so much!! I will be sharing this with my sweet friend who is trying to beat brain cancer. She is just 23 and was just this morning telling me how ugly she is feeling. She needs a pick me up, and this is just the thing! You are so sweet to share your talents with others and for letting us get to know this brave girl.
