Santanna’s best friend has an older sister, who is battling a brain tumor with all the energy she can muster. I know I have briefly written about this before, and I ran my last marathon for team Ana.
Elsa and Santanna have an extremely special bond. We are a place that E can come and escape some of the burden of chemo and pills and sadness that is detected even when I am sure it is trying not to show itself. She is a “super sib” and has been praised as that in many aspects and events. Not enough in the shadow of cancer, but she knows she is loved and valued.
Santanna and Elsa have know each other since they were 3 and now that they are both just turning 6, that is like forever!
All Elsa wanted for her birthday according to her mom was Santanna.
What do you give as a gift to a girl who adamantly prays for a cure for her sister’s cancer? For normalcy?
I can’t tell you….
But we did make her a super E cape, a reminder that she is amazing and wonderful, and as many other little girls would love…one for her American Girl Doll.
It was really an easy project, and E loved it!!
Here is Tanna modeling it with our own AG doll Lucy:
If you have it in you, whatever your persuasion or belief, even though you do not know their family, will you please take a moment and use your heart to give a beat for Ana. They really are an amazing family. I know they will feel and appreciate it.
