Little Girl Who Lost Her Eye To Cancer Gets A Doll Designed Just For Her


Here's a story that will destroy you with its sweetness: meet 3-year-old Brynn, an adorable little girl who has already had more than her fair share of trials in her life thus far. Shortly after her first birthday, Brynn was diagnosed with undifferentiated sarcoma, a form of cancer that caused a tumor behind her left eyeball, The Huffington Post reports. After multiple surgeries, Brynn lost her eye. Her mother, Danielle Munger, wanted to give her something special for her third birthday, and commissioned a handmade doll from Sebastian Designs. And it turned out perfect:

The design company is run by Jessica Sebastian, who wrote a post about the doll she constructed for Brynn that has touched a lot of hearts. 

After sharing images of a one-eyed bunny being clutched by a happy Brynn on Facebook, Sebastian wrote, "I make dolls, which is not a heroic profession by any means. But recently I was asked to make a doll for a little girl who is a true superhero.A mama contacted me and asked if I would make a bunny doll with one eye for her two-year-old daughter who loves animals and lost her left eye to cancer. The girl had started to notice that she was different and her sweet mama read articles about how finding a doll who matches how a child looks can be helpful and therapeutic. She wanted her daughter to have a doll that looks like her and only has her right eye. To date, I don't think I've ever been asked to create something so tender and meaningful.So here is the adorable little girl on her third birthday, hugging her one-eyed bunny who is just as perfect and beautiful as she is. My favorite part of this photo is how she is wearing her Wonder Woman nightgown. It perfectly represents the strength and courage of this little superhero."
