Mailynn Lamarr

Nine year old Mailynn was diagnosed with cancer a year ago. What started as a perceived ear infection, turned into a life changing circumstance. Eventually, Mailynn had to undergo chemotherapy and face the inevitability of losing her hair.

Lee Ann Proia

This journey has changed me. It has reminded me of what is really important. It has reminded me to trust in the Lord. It has made me simplify my life and slow down and enjoy every moment. It has made me see how many people love me. It has made me bolder, stronger, tougher.

Emily VanKeuren

October 21st of every year will never be the same for as long as I live. It is the day I began my battle with cancer, and it is a day I will never forget.

Carol McLane

After two mammograms, a couple of needle biopsies, and other tests, the surgeon said to me, “Someday I will have good news for you, but not today.” This started my journey with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma.

Cadia Wiseman

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. You may ask yourself, “What does that mean to me?” Well last year, I would have asked myself the same question…until my daughter, Cadia, was diagnosed with B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of 9 in August of 2016.

Angelique Slater

I found a lump in my breast doing a self check. It was the beginning of June and I felt a very large lump. I knew right away it was cancer, just a gut feeling.

Becky Richards

My advice for others going through cancer is to have a great support system and choose to be thankful in each moment and each day focus on the positive.

Rebecca Wallace

It’s hard to feel pretty with scars on the side of my neck and chest from biopsies and my port, so it was nice to have an afternoon of makeup and henna.

Anna Walz

I had mistaken this “lump” for a clogged milk duct nearly nine months before, and as a busy nursing mom of twins, I had just forgotten about it.  This lump turned out to be grade 3 triple negative breast cancer and a 6 cm. tumor.

Amy Blunt

My name is Amy Blunt and I am a one year breast cancer survivor. On February 14, 2017, I received that dreaded phone call. The voice on the other end told me that I had cancer…words a person never wants to hear.

Alexandria Yonkman

My name is Alexandria Yonkman, I am only 23 and the mother to three beautiful children; I am also the girlfriend to an amazing man, that is also the father to our children! For the last year I have been battling cancer.

We’re on a mission to adorn at least 1,000 cancer survivors with sacred henna!
