Mindy, Mindy, Mindy….where do I start with Mindy. She is one of the main reasons I decided to put this book and project together. In the short time that we’ve been friends, I’ve really bonded with her and love her positive, fun personality. I remember finding out that she had been diagnosed and instantly knowing that she would beat it and be strong enough to get through it all. She caught it early, in stage 0, thank goodness, through self-checking and her regular mammogram. But even as tough as Mindy is, and with the support that she had, it still takes a toll on you, no matter who you are. It’s not an easy thing to go through.
After she completed her treatments, I wanted to give her something, anything, to help her feel better. It motivated me to get this project going as soon as possible! And so the pampering began! And I just hope that I was able to give her a little bit of the encouragement that she’s given me over these past years. She’s one of the most beautiful people I know and hopefully women like her will be able to see that through these sessions.
