Girl Who Lost Her Eye to Cancer Gets Custom Bunny Who Looks Just Like Her
It's the beginning of a lifelong friendship between a brave little girl and her lookalike stuffed animal.
Yesterday we told you about a little girl who went shopping and picked a doll that didn't look like her; at least not in the traditional sense. For another little girl, though, having a doll who resembles her is very important. Three-year-old Brynn Munger lost her left eye to cancer two years ago, and recently realized she looks different from other kids.
So her mama commissioned a custom doll, well, a bunny actually, from Sebastian Design, that had also lost his left eye. The company shared an adorable photo of the new friends on its Facebook page, along with a caption, that reads in part, "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."
The doll maker goes on to say that the mom "wanted her daughter to have a doll that looks like her and only has her right eye," and also shares, "To date, I don't think I've ever been asked to create something so tender and meaningful."
The picture of Brynn and the bunny, whom she named Sparkle, was taken on the child's birthday. "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," the post reads.
