An army of volunteers create handmade dolls for children battling cancer and other illnesses. The dolls are meticulously made with the recipient’s likeness in mind — such as the same hair color, facial features and favorite outfit of the child. The founder of the program, called Feel Good Friends, is Shanon Fouquet of Olathe, who crochets a doll for a child with juvenile diabetes. She says the dolls “can take on average 10 to 15 hours to crochet.”
