My grandmother (I call her "Nanny") was diagnosed with ovarian cancer two years ago. She has received chemo, she has underwent surgeries. She has received radiology. She continues to smile, talk with me at length about wigs (I collect them, and now she does too), and be supportive - just as a grandmother should.
At around the same time as her initial diagnosis, I started making plushies for people. She kept telling me how proud she was of me that I was the first in my family to be able to make at least a little money doing something I love. She is my biggest fan and I love her dearly.
So I have created a bear for her. It is not my best work, oh no. But it is something made, from the heart, for a woman who inspires me and a woman who holds my family together. Nanny, this bear is for you.
