I have the privilege of participating in A Team`s Heart to Heart Event this year. It is when local artists are paired with pediatric cancer patients to create art. My sweet girl is Emma Hope. She is 5 years old and was just diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in March of this year. We just met for the first time at our local Chick Fil A and had a great little visit.

Several weeks later, she was able to come to Birmingham to visit me in my art room at my house. She had told me that her favorite color is pink, so of course, she needed her very own pink art apron. The project was all ready for her to arrive.

After painting for a while, she took a little break playing with some toys and reading books. She is such a good little reader.

More to come later. The big event is February, 2016, where there will be an auction to raise money for pediatric awareness. We both will have our paintings there.
