TREE in the background is dark brown, and writing is done in a very light beige vinyl.

“Hannah’s Tile” – Have you ever heard of Dravet Syndrome? I hadn’t until I was contacted by Hannah’s mother, and she told me her story. Usually we make this tile with a pale pink ribbon for breast cancer, but Hannah’s mom asked if we could make one with a purple ribbon. We were glad to make it for her after we heard her story. Please take time to watch the link below. I think it will touch your heart.

12″ tile with purple ribbon – $19  (Just ask for “Hannah’s Tile).

Black metal stand – $6.

NOTE:  Not available in 6” tiles.

Below is an excerpt of the email messages that  Hannah’s mom sent me:

“My daughter has Dravet Syndrome and this quote is so true for myself and my family.   Here is her story:

Here’s an update from Hannah’s mom after the video was taken:

“I absolutely LOVE the tile.  Thank you so much for making it for me.  Hannah is our sweet little angel.  She still has seizures everyday but overall she is doing better.  She has been on life support three times.  She is a fighter.  Developmentally she is delayed but she has so much love to give.  She can give us hugs and kisses, and that is priceless.  I would love to hear her speak one day and say “I love you” but even if she doesn’t say it I know she feels it . 🙂  My family is very strong, and we just wake up every morning and see it as a new day.”

Your story touched our hearts, Hannah, and we hope you continue to make progress with the treatment of Dravet Syndrome.

NOTE:  We still make this 12″ tile with a pale pink ribbon too.  Last fall we learned that different kinds of cancer use different colored ribbons as an emblem for where the cancer strikes the body.  We will be glad to see if we can get the right color of ribbon to meet your needs.  Just contact us at:

This saying can fit many different situations without the pink ribbon — not just for breast cancer victims.  The first ones that popped into my mind are:  Single moms and death of a loved one.  Can you add some other situations?
