Meet Meyliah, the most recent Little Mothers Gifts of Grace recipient. Meyliah is super sassy, and a little shy. Loves to play with friends, and really enjoys playing with makeup!
Meyliah was diagnosed with Langherhan's Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) in December of last year. Her mom noticed swelling above her eye and after several doctor's visits was sent to Children's Oncology in St. Louis.
After confirming the diagnosis Meyliah began treatment. She receives chemo therapy and other standard cancer treatments.
LCH was considered a cancer by the ACA last year, and is considered a cancer of the immune system, because it can attack the body anywhere. Meyliah's is in the bones of her face. If you would like more information regarding LCH please go to this link. _
One of the best parts of Little Mothers Gifts of Grace sessions is the letting the kids select accessories for the shoot. Myeliah loves pink, like most little girls her age, and was all about pink for her session. It was adorable watching her make choices regarding her headband and wrap top. She was also a huge fan of the pink sparkly eye shadow!
As always I am so grateful for the support for these sessions, if you know a child who would enjoy a Little Mothers Gifts of Grace session pleas contact me at mailto:email@example.com
