My wife Heather has a great quote in her email signature line and it reads like this:
Always be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle. – Plato
Our guest this week, Stefanie Hurt, is fighting a hard battle but you’d never know just by looking at her. She’s strong, determined, optimistic, full of life and fighting her second round of breast cancer. Shortly after giving birth to her son, Stefanie was diagnosed for the first time. She went through treatment whilst settling in to her new role as a first-time mom. She was 24 at the time. Now, a mere three years later, she’s fighting her second bout with cancer.
During her treatments for this second round, she made it a point to wear a superhero costume. Her young son would help her pick out the outfit and, as you’ll hear, he went on to wear a cape himself as a sign of support for his mom.
Stefanie is a go-getter and is committed to making a difference. To that end she’s started a new non-profit organization call W.I.N.K. – Women In Need of Kindness.
So, if you happen to see her, just give her a wink! It’ll mean the world to her.
You can follow Stefanie and the work of W.I.N.K: Women In Need of Kindness on Facebook.
