Good Morning one and all…here’s wishing you all a wonderful and enchanting day!
I have to tell you that I am really enjoying reading your personal “Impossibles” they are just wonderful and I am sending out supportive hugs to you all!
Now I would like to introduce to you a very wonderful young man…I know that he is going to touch your heart and if you are looking for Inspiration in your life…here it is!
(Update…Preston’s Mom just told me they will be putting more in the shop later today…the SOLD OUT…APPLAUSE!!!)
My friend Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage told me about this young man and of course I had to let you all know about him…I would like you to meet Preston…one look at this precious face your heart will sink and you will magically fall in love with him and his incredibly kind and loving heart.
Meet Preston: Unfortunately, he has never know life without cancer but will never let it get in the way of living life. Preston was diagnosed with cancer in his white blood cells (Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis) at 5 months old and battled it for a little over 5 years. 8 months after his diagnosis, his dad was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and battled for 8 years before his family lost him in April 2010. In August 2011, Preston was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma and began treatment in September 2011. After a few weeks, his hair fell out and he asked his mother to teach him to make hats.
His mother took him to the fabric store and let him pick out a pattern and some fleece. He made himself a couple of hats and then informed me that he wanted to make hats for the kids at the cancer center and continue to do so after his treatment is over. Within a week, word had spread like crazy among his family, friends, and friends of friends. He has already sent 65 hats to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital (in Nashville) and 45 to Denver’s Children’s Hospital, in less than four months of opening his shop,
Here’s the amazing part: Each hat in his shop is $5. With the purchase of one of his cute hats – you receive yours and he uses the proceeds to make FOUR hats to send to a children’s hospital.
A pretty amazing story isn’t it! I cried and smiled but one thing I know is that Preston is what is good in the world…a pure heart…a helping hand…a loving spirit…so much to learn from such a young man…I know that he has inspired me and I know that he will touch your heart and inspire you!
Preston…we are all wishing you the Stars…
See you all tomorrow my friends with a project…I hope : )
sending you tons of
