3-Year-Old Pays Tribute To Grandmother Who Survived Cancer

Scout Larson is not your ordinary 3-year-old. At a young age, she’s celebrating women empowerment by emulating looks from strong and resilient women.

She’s stolen the hearts of everyone on the internet who have come across her adorable photos!

The inception of recreating these looks from empowering women came from her mother Ashley Larson, who helped her come up with the idea as a way of coping with Scout’s grandmother’s cancer diagnoses and treatment.

The latest of Scouts photo shoot shows one of her real-life heroes her grandmothers, Nonnie. Her grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer in April of 2016, underwent six rounds of chemo and a double mastectomy.

Scout’s mom, Ashley, told HuffPost, “My mom, although she was sick, was my rock throughout the entire diagnosis and treatment. Fighting breast cancer, I know she was in pain and she was exhausted, but she never once showed that side to the little people who call her ‘Nonnie’…Being a hero doesn’t always mean you’re saving the world…Sometimes, just showing up for life and meeting the problems head on is enough.”

Ashley’s mom and Scout’s grandmother is doing well, and cancer free. Ashley wants people to look at these photos to show women that they’re fierce, resilient, and strong. And in doing so, she’s also teaching Scout to look at herself through those lenses.
