A Royal Update - The Young Princess Sports a New Do

Professional photographer Maris Ehlers documents St. Michael resident's daughter's battle with Stage 4 Hodgkins with updated pictures.

Once upon a time, there was a story called  .  It is a lovely, but yet unfinished story of a princess named Zoe, who passes on a very special crown to young princess Yvonne.  

It is a must read, if we do say so ourselves.  Perhaps we should say that the King has ordered it to be read by every one in the kingdom. 

Today we pick up the royal tale as Princess Yvonne begins her fourth round of chemotherapy (with at least another four to go after this), and as this first series took place, she "decided" she needed a new do.  One that would reflect her sassy, bold attitude, and one that sadly, all princesses fighting cancer ultimately get. 

As Sir Winston Churchill once said, "A good attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference," and Princess Yvonne has that in spades. 

Enjoy seeing her lovely royal self with her glorious new "do".  

Many people are sending prayers to the young princess today as she enters the hospital again, and we hope to add each of you to the royal list. 

The happy ending to this royal tale is yet to be told, and we look forward to sharing it with you soon.  

Editor's note: Young Yvonne's family lives here in St. Michael. We're rooting for you, your highness!
