(KUTV) A little girl’s dream to become a designer is living on. Millie Flamm was just seven-years-old when she passed away from cancer a little over a year ago, but not before she had the chance to fulfill a dream of designing her own dress that other girls can now wear.
Millie’s family and a Utah clothing company are teaming up to help others fulfill their dreams and offer assistance to other families who have children with cancer.
The Persnickety Clothing Line in American Fork first offered to give Millie her dream of designing her own dress.
“The outfit was finished the day before she passed, for her to be able to see that outfit, and to accomplish that dream, was amazing for us,” said Millie’s father, Brady Flamm.
Millie’s family, who helped create Millie’s Princess Foundation to help others in need, is teaming up with Persnickety to help another girl fighting cancer realize her dream.
Cami Carver, 9, who met Millie while they were both fighting cancer, was able to design her own dress for the 2014 Princess Millie Girls Clothing Collection.
“We had a lot in common because we were fighting through cancer,” Cami said. “We both had some of the favorite colors and loved designing.”
Cami, who is now out of chemotherapy and doing much better, says she loves her dress, and says her friend Millie helped make this happen even though she’s gone.
“The apron I chose because I always thought of Millie as a hummingbird because she had this amazing little tweet and it sounded like a bird,” Cami explained.
She also said while she loved her dress, she thought Millie’s masterpiece was even more beautiful.
“She should be a world famous artist, I think,” she said.
Proceeds from the sales of the dresses will go directly to help other families who have children with cancer.
“Every time somebody buys one of these outfits, it’s making a dream for these kids come true,” Brady Flamm told 2News, “So we hope people know we appreciate them purchasing these dresses and supporting us.”
The dress line was released last month as part of Childhood Cancer Month.
