Book: Friend Ships in a Storm
SHAELYN SIMIS is a brave, vibrant, happy 7-year-old from Meridian, Idaho. She loves ladybugs and making people laugh. Shae was diagnosed in February 2013 with stage III Melanoma. She has a strong fighting spirit which gives those around her strength. As a 1st grader, she enjoys school, and she powers through her days even when chemotherapy makes her tired and sick. Shaelyn’s favorite thing to do is spending time at the family cabin near Stanley, Idaho, with her whole family. LUCKY NOTE: it was after we designed Daisy that we found out ladybugs are called ladybirds in England!
