Smiles Package for Arysta Sayakhammy
Arysta Sayakhammy was diagnosed with (ALL) Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia pre-B cell in 2014. At the end of October she will finish her treatment and ring the celebratory bell. She has an older brother and two sisters, one of which is her twin. Her Smiles Application said that she likes to play with her sisters, playing dress up, loves my little pony, and playing outside. So, I went shopping for dresses and my little pony toys, which I never saw myself doing until just recently. Gladly, it only took one trip. I found wonderful things that turned out to be perfect for her. We got her a treasure chest with tons of dress up dresses, and tons of My Little Pony toys, tiny skirts, and a really cool bubble machine.
Delivering the Smiles PackageWhen we were planning to deliver the package I thought that there had to be a cooler person than a boring non-princess man like me to deliver this package, so I called my cousin, Andra. Andra is super pretty and the closest thing to a real life princess you’ll ever find. It didn’t take much convincing for her to agree to helping me deliver the package, I just needed to tell her the address and when it was and she would take care of the rest. So, we met Andra at Arysta’s house with the package and I was glad to see that Andra did not disappoint. She had transformed into a princess! She had even brought Arysta and her sisters a necklace. We went up to the doorstep and Arysta answered the door. She and her sisters all freaked out that a princess was at their house. After about ten minutes of this, they finally settled down enough to actually open the Smiles Package we put together for her, and she freaked out even more. Arysta and her sisters were so happy to get all this cool stuff. She was so happy, and I was glad that I could do this for her, her sisters, and Andra. I think Andra was the happiest one there, and I knew that she was feeling a little down, so the whole ordeal made me that much happier. I’m so amazed at this little foundation and at all the smiles it brings to so many faces, including my own.
