Mirra Blehert

Aspiring artist Mirra Blehert was only seven years old when she created this piece of artwork. Now eight years old, Mirra is entering third grade but has already been affected by two cancer diagnoses. Mirra lost her maternal grandfather to pancreatic cancer before she was born and her beloved aunt Debbie to uterine cancer when she was five. She created this drawing for the 2013 Expressions of Hope calendar to honor their memory and to share her wish of peace, love and happiness for all those affected by cancer.
