    Doll 109 for a very sick child

    This doll will be mailed out to a child from N.V.
    She is only five years old and has been diagnosed
    with Neuro Blastima (Blastoma?) which is a serious
    form of cancer. Her name is Kinsley.

    It will be sent today. More info to follow, as it is
    available for posting. She is struggling but
    trying to stay cheerful in spite of it all.

    fee's are going up. It cost a few cents short of $25 to mail the package fed-ex. No problem right now as I still have a little bit in the non-profit checking account, but another 3 or 4 and I might have to check with organizations that help with this kind of thing, and see if they will donate shipping costs. If not, we will ....as always ...somehow manage.

    I made a mistake saying North Virginia. Kinsley lives in West Virginia. The doll will be there in 4 business days from this evening when the truck comes to pick up new stuff.

    I'm glad everyone is enjoying the doll. It is the only quilted one I've done. I hope down the road to do another just like it.

    Thank you everyone.

    Thanks Vickey for sending the doll. I know Kinsley will love it and find lots of joy and comfort in having her new doll with her during her treatments. Thanks again and May God Bless You for all that you are doing for these sick children.

    Thanks so much for the reply to this posting. I pray Kinsley will find lots of love and comfort in the arms of her doll. I sent the birth certificate. Please ask them to put doll 109 in the number slot and her name (Kinsley ) as the mother, and whatever she names her doll in dolls name spot. The date of birth will be the day she first holds her doll in her arms. God Bless all.

    I have a lot of health issues.....but this I can do. Thanks for those words. If you know of a child with a devestating health issue, please don't hesitate to let me know. Just send a PM and I will get back to you. I check each day.

    Hugs to you and yours

    Hi Wordpaintervs
    I might be able to help you with some of the lace involved in the dressmaking for the dolls.
    Please post and let me know if you could use that kind of help. I'm also in No.Calif.
    The dolls are beautiful! Terri123

    I always need wide ribbon for decorating the skirts when it is available. It takes 4 yards of narrow ribbon (1 yd minimum of each of 4 colors for waist line ties, so that is 8 yards per doll. I try to make them as pretty or the kids as I possibly can

    Thanks so much for all those precious replies. They are all appreciated. For those who might not know, these dolls are mainly for kids 2 to 8 who suffer from devestating medical conditions. Both doll and mailing are free. If the doll goes to either Del Norte county or Humboldt county in California, and meant for a child with cancer, the ACS will mail it for me.

    Thanks 98% or thereabouts of the dolls end up with a child with cancer.

    I will tell you that this doll would make an 81 year old woman very happy, too. Did anyone of us not smile when we saw her? What a beauty!

    Thanks for the addy, WordPainter. I will see what lace and ribbon I have that might be of
    help for you. I used to own a fabric store and I may have some left overs you could use.

    Both are beautiful dolls. You are such a wonderful person to give to the sick children. She will love it and it will bring a smile to for precious little face. I will keep Kinsley and her family in my prayers. I really like the fabric on the first one.
