These are her brand new shoes from Peach's Neet Feet! Peach (AKA Madison) and her team paint custom shoes for kids fighting cancer. They try to fit kids' individual tastes and give them a pair of shoes to wear during the hardest walk of their little lives. When I saw someone else's Neet Feet, I couldn't order ours fast enough!

Scarlett was fascinated by her new shoes (the first times she's ever had laces, and she couldn't wait to pull them!)

Peach started PNF just last year to brighten the faces of a few kids. Now, she has done over 180 pairs! The kids who wear them are often bald, in wheelchairs, hospitalized or feeling sick, but their Neet Feet are a source of pride and happiness. Scarlett is too young to understand, but one day I will show her these shoes, how tiny they are, and remind her how far she has come.
Peach's Neet Feet accepts donations of money ($25-30 buys shoes for one child), as well as new canvas shoes (Converse, Vans, Toms, etc.) that can be decorated for a special fighter. You can sponsor a child you know and be their "shoe fairy" by hand delivering the finished product.
