Be Inspired: Meet Sandra – Victory Session

Mona writes: Sandra has asked me to write her story – here it is…. “Courage….I always thought I understood what that word meant…..that is, until I met Sandra Vecera and her young son, Tyler. I am both proud and humbled to introduce them to you – here is their victory story. I say “their” because this truly is a story about the two of them, their bond, their love, their resilience. Sandra was diagnosed in 2011 with Stage 4 glioblastoma, which is the same brain cancer that afflicted former Senator Edward Kennedy....

Email Messages PLEASE READ!

I was advised that one of our admin’s email accounts was hacked and almost a million spam messages have gone out from it. This has caused our domain to be blocked by many hosts and servers. Apparently it’s been going on for several weeks and has gone unnoticed. I am working hard to get things sorted out and going again. If you have contacted us but haven’t received an email back, this is probably the issue. We are getting some *hate* mail that we are ignoring people which is absolutely not the case and I can’t even...

Be Inspired: Meet Pam – Battle Session

I received this session in the beginning of January but we’ve been so busy, I’ve not even been able to post it. I looked at it when it came in and touched my heart, personally. I noticed on the submission form, that the waiver for us to post it was checked “No”. I was saddened by this until I read further…I asked Amy if we could share this session on our blog and she, so graciously, said “yes please.” Here’s Pam’s story, as told by her daughter, one of our very own photographers, Amy...

BROOKFIELD, WI Wig Shoppers BEWARE

BROOKFIELD, WI Wig Shoppers BEWARE

I don’t normally post what other people write about businesses. However, in this case, I fear that someone searching for a wig may encounter this horrible business and be treated wrongly. I know shopping for a wig is such an emotional and personal experience and it needs to be treated with style and grace from the customer service side of it. I have found other reviews, on other sites, about this business so I feel there is absolute truth to it. If you live around or in Brookfield, Wisconsin I would be wary of shopping at this wig shop....

Be Inpsired: Meet Bill – Battle Session

Bill originally found out he had cancer in the summer of 2012. At that time it seemed to be a slow growing sarcoma in his pelvis that could be removed surgically with no need for chemo or radiation. Unfortunately, in the summer of 2013 Bill started having back pain. He had scans and MRI’s which showed that the sarcoma had returned, spread to his back, very near his spine and was growing fast. At first it seemed surgery wasn’t an option because of the closeness of the sarcoma to the spinal nerves. But Bill was sent to a specialist...

Be Inspired: Meet Kristina – Victory Session

“I had never had insurance. I didn’t think it was worth the cost. My employer made insurance obligatory in preparation for the ACA (Affordable Care Act). Since I finally had health insurance, I decided to have a lump on my left leg examined. The surgeon was sure that it was a lipoma. So sure, in fact, that he went ahead and removed it, only to find out later that it was cancer. I learned that this is called an “oops surgery”. My husband was with me when we were told that it was probably sarcoma. I hung on to the word...

Be Inpsired: Meet Regina – Battle Session

In Regina Foreman’s own words: One Friday night, after training for a half marathon, I was in the shower and found a lump. A Friday night, which meant I had to wait the entire weekend before seeing my doctor hopefully on that Monday. Fear sat in before the prayer and I felt I needed to call someone to talk to but couldn’t decide who, so I spent the entire weekend frighten. By the time Monday morning rolled around, I was tired, scared and expecting the worst. I called my doctor’s office to get an appointment for that day and was told...
