Meet Chloe – Winner of 2010 Memorial Princess sessions

This little girl’s mother says “Oh, she’s pure magic. Everyone falls in love with her.” It’s so so true. Meet Chloe. She’s the winner of this year’s Memorial Princess Session. Her nominator wrote “Our Honored Hero for the Athens Leukemia/Lymphoma Society is a 3-yr old girl named Chloe. She was born with Downs Syndrome and at the age of 2 was diagnosed with leukemia. After 6 months in the hospital, she is now in remission! I don’t know her last name, but I’m copying the LLS representative on this email so that she can send you the info. Chloe would be a wonderful choice for your princess because she is one of those “self-rescuing princesses” that should be in more fairy tales. She’s joyful and loves to sing and dance. She is just a kid, regardless of how much she’s survived…she’s just a sweet little kid.

Tonight’s session was super super fun. She laughed and bounced through the session and I found myself giggling so much my stomach muscles hurt! Her daddy flew his little tinkerbell all over the gardens, her mommy blew her kisses and her sister played ball with her and everyone (including me) loved her to bits. She really IS a self-rescuing princess, and the world needs more of her for sure.
