Caroline Telesmanic says of these boxes: “They make people happy. She just rang the bell for the last round of chemotherapy after a nine-month battle with a bone tumor.
She received the nickname “Courageous Caroline” during her fight.
Caroline’s mother Shayna Telesmanic said: ‘I’ve had contact with adults who said they had to go in for treatment and they didn’t want to, but just looking at her makes them think okay, I can do this too ,” said Shayna Telesmanic, Caroline’s mother.
The Telesmanic family made 100 boxes of warriors for One At A Time, a group dedicated to sending boxes to children in hospitals. Caroline feels it’s important that the kids at Valley Children’s Hospital receive the box in the morning when they start treatment.
“When you’re in the hospital, there’s not much to do,” says Shayna. “Just getting the little things that will brighten your day helps a lot.”
The Telesmanic family plan to deliver more boxes to the hospital when they return to check up on Caroline in three months.
