Inspiration is all around us, if we take the time to look and listen. A High School friend of mine named Mike sent me a message last night asking if I would write about his BBF, (their version of BFF ;)) who inspires him immensely. I couldn’t say no because that is what one of our goals here on Tara Cronica…Inspiring others to live their most authentic lives, use our voices to create positive change in the world in which we live and ‘Find Lyrical Beauty in Everyday Happenings!’
Mike described Teresa as one of the most thoughtful positive human beings he has ever met. Mike told me that you can’t help but be lifted by her spirit when you are in her company. She is a true Mom who puts her two boys always first!
Last April Teresa found a lump in her right breast, a story that is becoming far to familiar with all women! Teresa went through the Breast Health Clinic in Surrey and couldn’t say enough about the staff and team of surgeons! After biopsy’s and MRI’s they found precancerous tissue and Teresa eventually underwent a full mastectomy. By being so courageous and sharing her story, Teresa inspires everyone who crosses her path.
Mike went to every appointment with his BBF 😉 and said he felt that he was in the presence of greatness. That is a Best BBF EVER!!
Mike has decided to put on a fundraiser in Teresa’s name to help ease her mind while she is on the road to recovery. It will be held at Jimmy Mac’s Pub in Langley on Feb 10th (Sunday) starting at 4:30! There will be prizes, silent auction, 50/50 and karaoke by donation!
Mikes daughter Tina created the Dream Catcher you see in the photo above which is made out of donated bras. As Mike says “I’m sure the dream catcher has a million stories” hehe! I am sure it does! Tina has offered her work of art to raise money for this fundraiser. If you are interested in joining the auction please contact Mike @ firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
Thank you Teresa for sharing your story with us here on Tara Cronica! I hope your journey touches the lives of many giving hope and courage for those who follow in your footsteps. Mike you are a true friend, women need the support and strength from our male energy and you have given just that, making a difference in a beautiful woman’s life!
