Elyse Dehlbom, Sarah's Closet

Elyse Dehlbom, known by many as a contestant on the 23rd season of The Bachelor, is a 1 Girl Revolution herself and shares the story of her incredible sister’s own 1 Girl Revolution legacy left behind.

Elyse, a makeup artist from Alaska, who now resides in Arizona, shared the story of her sister Sarah who was a labor and delivery nurse, who was diagnosed with a rare neuroendocrine cancer while pregnant with her second child. Sarah unfortunately passed away, but her legacy lives on through Elyse and her family, Sarah’s children and husband, and an organization founded in her honor called “Sarah’s Closet”, which gives every new baby born a gift.
