Boston Update & Serape Blankets!

Hey guys!  Last November I told you about my friend Amanda and her little boy Boston.  Boston had just been diagnosed with A.L.L.  We were completely overwhelmed at the love and support that you guys showed to their family.   You guys raised more money for Bos, than they had ever raised in a single month.  THANK YOU!!!

I asked Amanda if she could share an update on how our little fighter is doing.


Boston is doing really well right now. After a few setbacks, we finally entered the Maintenance phase of his treatment. This is the phase he will stay in for the next 2.5+ years. This means we only have scheduled monthly clinic visits and a few different meds and chemotherapies given at home each day. We love only having to go to clinic once a month! Boston’s lost all of his hair during the last phase, but it has started growing back over the last month. I will miss that cute bald head, I think I kissed it a hundred times a day. We are loving that it’s summer time, we are finally able to go outside and slowly bring Boston to more places. After months of being stuck at home, its so nice to see him outside playing again. He still has a limp from months of not walking, but he’s getting stronger every day. He is so resilient and brave! He has been through a lot since October, but he continues to amaze us every day with how happy he is. We are so lucky to call him ours!!

Every month PS I Adore You chooses a Cancer Cutie, all of the donations for the month will go directly to their family.  This month’s Cancer Cutie hits incredibly close to home.  Taleah is from the same smallish town that I live in.  It has been amazing to see how many people have rallied around her family.  She is fighting cancer for the second time and needs all the love and prayers that you can spare.  You can read her story here.

I hope you have the best day, and hug your littles extra tight!

Love Your Guts

    My mom and I just each ordered a blanket! Sending love and prayers to Boston and Taleah.

  2. Love the blankets!! What percentage of each sale goes to the families?

    • I don’t think any portion of the purchase price goes to the families. When you make your purchase you are given the option at checkout to add any amount you choose to donate to the family. At the end of the month the family receives a gift basket with one of each item featured that month along with a check for the total amount that customers donated. Hope that helps. I found the info in the website’s FAQ page. I was wondering about that too!

      • Thanks, Sara. I received an email from the company saying that 3% of the sales is donated to the cancer cutie of the month.

    Is the blanket heavy enough to use as an area rug?

    Such beautiful angels, the film was so hard to watch, but also such a blessing. What these little angels are and will endure yet have the biggest smile on their sweet faces and a beautiful light in their eyes. Its truly a blessing to see answered prayers and Gods hand in Boston’s cute little bald head to the swirl of blond hair on his adorable head.

  5. What a great action and I just looked to order one for my family ! Lots of love to Boston and Taleah from France !

  6. The story of Boston, and P.S. I Adore You is a great story, and a great share — how incredible Mandi that you have this platform to do such great things like this!!!

  7. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful story! Where is that black chair from? Please tell me I can find it…
