You will always have my heart
Heart of Gold was inspired by a young cancer patient, Scott Kristopher Innes, at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City.
“Scott's boundless and positive energy reflected on those around him, and as a result, good things continue to radiate from his spirit. His courageous spirit and kind smile showed me how one little heart of gold can continue to bring so much love, joy and comfort to others. It is my hope that this figure expresses the pure and honest affection between a child and those who love and care for him.”
