ARTICLE EXCERPT: There are a lot of ways to think about princesses. For some, it means wearing flowing dresses and tiaras, and for others, Disney movies come to mind.
For Valicity Faith, being a princess meant being outgoing, magnetic and stronger in her five years than most adults – even the princes, kings and queens.
In 2008, a week before her third birthday, doctors diagnosed Valicity with leukemia. She endured 13 months of chemotherapy in Seattle, after which her cancer was considered in remission.
To celebrate her return to the Flathead, Valicity’s parents, Josh and Candy Faith, organized an informal Princess Ball for family and friends in 2009. Her parents had always considered her a princess, Josh said, so it felt right to have such a theme in her honor.
