Pearce & Bopso

Cancer patient Pearce couldn’t believe her eyes when her Christmas tree, “Bopso” came to life as an artling. When she saw “Bopso” for the first time, she flopped back on the bed and just stared at it, comparing each part to her drawing. Pearce’s smile radiates her approval.

Brandyn & Shane

Brandyn took a break during his chemo treatment to chat with us and draw a picture of his hero, baseball player for the Phillies Shane Victorino. He relayed a story of how he met Shane at a playoff game, and told us it was the best day of his life. Upon receiving his Shane look-alike, he proceeded to “play baseball” with him and taught him how to play Nintendo. :)
