May 25, 2014 — Mattel has decided to make more "Ella" Barbies available for children like our daughter Grace who have cancer and who have lost their hair. Ella will help kids know that they are beautiful even without hair.
Mattel has decided to make the dolls annually, which means every year hospitals, charities, and foundations will receive a fresh supply of Ella Barbies to give out.
We want to thank you for being part and for making a difference. And we want to especially thank Mattel- they're a corporation with a big heart that loves kids. They told me, "we believe donating Ella Barbies is the right thing to do."
Please take the time to share the good news, and to thank Mattel for helping kids with cancer to feel good about themselves.
