Girl Loses Eye to Cancer. Then Doll Just as Special as Her Arrives and She Can’t Stop Smiling
Three-year-old Brynn Munger is one of the strongest warriors imaginable.
At the tender age of one, her family noticed that her left eyelid began to droop so they got her in to the family doctor right away. But the news wasn’t good and Brynn was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor behind her eye.
After several more rounds of radiation, the persistent tumor returned for a third time, prompting surgeons to remove the two-year-old’s eye.
With her upcoming third birthday approaching, her mom Danielle wanted to make her daughter feel extra special, so she reached out to doll maker Jessica Sebastian to create a one-of-a-kind doll just like Brynn.
When Jessica heard Brynn’s story, she was incredibly touched to be part of something so “meaningful.”
She worked nonstop to create a stuffed white bunny with one eye and a sparkly gold tutu so that Brynn could receive it in time for her birthday.
When the big day came and she opened up her present, Brynn couldn’t contain her excitement.
“Sparkle has one eye!” and “She’s like me!” Brynn said.
The response to Jessica’s creation has been overwhelmingly positive and she said she’s got enormous respect for the superhero that Brynn has become.
You go, girl! Keep shining like the bright star you are!
