"Delicately colored mosaics. Swirling currents of neon green. Who knew that cancer, so terrifying, could be so weirdly beautiful?"

What a moving testament to a mother's love for her child. "Little" things matter so much....

After Faith May Beckstead's head was shaved before her brain surgery to remove a tumor, her mom Jamie Dawn shaved her own head to cheer her up.

"It's been an amazing journey, parts of which we wish we didn't have to go through," Alyssa Ostergren said. "But look at her. She is happy, healthy at this point and we are taking a trip of a lifetime."

“We are really, really grateful for all the support,” Lisa said. “Her walls in the hospital were covered in cards; her windowsill was covered in stuffed animals and flowers. That helps as much as the medicine, I think. We may not ever get to thank every person, but hopefully we’ll get to return it someday. It would have been a very lonely time if it wasn’t for this community.”
