Linda Fisher's Story - the Story Behind Wings of Angels
When I was forty, I was told that I had breast cancer. That day - that moment - changed my life forever. My thoughts were suddenly focused on so many questions. How long do I have? What about this, and what about that? It was a long while before I was able to think about something other than cancer.
During that time, I crossed paths with a beautiful lady named Lisa. She gave me the strength I needed to help me put my life back together. I remember asking her if my life will ever get back to a point where I can smile again…even laugh. Lisa had already gone through this ordeal herself, and she was happy to tell me that I would indeed enjoy life again, smile, laugh, and so much more!
I remember how those words sounded and thinking "I HOPE she was right." Well, it is my pleasure to share with you that she was right. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer, it does not mean life is over.
It took me a while to figure it out, but eventually I realized that this was actually a strengthening experience for me.
Lisa gave me support and encouragement when I needed it most. And now I want to help others who face the challenges of breast cancer, other illnesses, recovery, even loss. That’s why I founded Wings of Angels - to provide support and comfort to individuals dealing with life's most challenging times. Each Gift Basket is filled with items carefully selected by me, items to soothe and comfort the healing body, mind and soul. I invite you to browse the selection of Gift Baskets.
Once you choose hope, anything's possible. ~Christopher Reeve
