Februrary Cancer Cutie- Bella Meyer

I am so excited for today's post. I am teaming up with the lovely ladies over at PS I Adore You . PS I Adore you is a Daily Deal site that is on a mission to build awareness and support around childhood cancer. Each month they feature a 'Cancer Cutie', a child who has been diagnosed with cancer, then they donate a part of every sale to help them in their courageous fight.



On August 12, seven year old Bella Meyer was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) type B. Since her diagnosis Bella has undergone multiple blood and platelet transfusions, bone marrow biopsies, many surgical procedures and countless rounds of chemotherapy at UW American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, WI. As part of the "highest risk" class leukemia patients, she is just beginning her fight. In December the wonderful team of doctors gave Bella and the family the best news. She is in remission! Unfortunately, this does not lighten the load any for Bella as far as treatment goes. Because of her "high risk" status she will continue to undergo all procedures and chemotherapy as previously planned out for the next 2 1/2 years.  Bella and the family will continue to endure weekly trips from Rockford, IL to Madison, WI.
Bella is a fun loving second grader who is wise beyond her years. Her amazing strength and brave spirit keeps her mom, dad and brother Braxton moving forward every day. Bella is a true girly girl. She loves to sing, dance, swim, and play with her American Girl dolls. Bella enjoys doing puzzles, arts and crafts and making bracelets. She has recently started a little business of making and selling these bracelets in order to save up for more AG stuff. Bella cares so much for others and has made many friends going through similar experiences at UW Children's hospital. She is an inspiration to her family and all who know her!

PS I Adore you has darling items that I know you will love! Or if you choose there is a spot to just donate to this sweet little girl.

Join us in support and celebration of these brave kids and let’s make a difference together!
