“Faith and Family”
My chair was inspired by my two beautiful sisters who lost their lives at such a young age to breast and ovarian cancer. I myself am a breast cancer survivor. This illness invaded our lives, our future, our hopes. . . . It was through the power of FAITH and FAMILY that helped make the pain a little less painful, the sorrow more bearable, and the image of my beautiful sisters memorable.
My nieces, in honor of my sisters, tattooed FAITH and FAMILY on their foot. When asked why they decided to put it on their foot they replied, “It’s our foundation, without our feet we can’t stand, walk or run . . . without or FAITH and FAMILY we have no foundation”.
My sisters never asked, “Why me” . . . instead they spent the rest of their lives making memories for the ones they left behind. I hope this chair will be filled with someone’s memories of their family or loved ones. . . . Life is a series of memories . . . make the most of them.
