Our Founder’s Story
In 2014 I witnessed firsthand the debilitating effects of breast cancer. It was painful to say the least, to witness my aunt and 3 close friends in pain. My aunt Ruby was a true gem. I watched the effects of breast cancer dissipate her joy, inner self confidence and self-esteem. She was far from the unshakeable, confident woman I once knew. Though her spirit remained endearing, something seemed to be missing. She complained of brittle nails, and not looking as good as she felt. Cancer was so debilitating for her, it affected her emotionally, spiritually, physically, and mentally.
Stacy, my friend, mentor, and beyond fabulous city socialite described the true reality of her pain in an intimate moment. She feared losing hair and this was the third battle with cancer. The effects of burning skin, brittle nails, back pain, thinning hair was some of her greatest complaints. She performed so much independent research on skincare products and their toxicity. She didn’t want to look sick, though beauty is only skin deep, it was hard for her to fathom the look of death on her face.
In 2015 I lost both of these ladies to metastatic breast cancer. I remember it like yesterday, they both passed three days apart and I was absolutely devastated. I later lost 2 other friends to this dreadful disease
I sat with my aunt in her last 2 hours to be exact. I held her hand , trying to make those last moments comfortable and played the song “Something about the name Jesus”, by Rance Allen. I repeatedly told her how beautiful she was, it was so important for her to know how beautiful I thought she was. It meant a lot to her, she had enough energy to say thank you. We wept heavily after her passing.
I often think about her and the impact she had on my life. My childhood memories are still vivid of her and the beautiful home she kept. I vividly remember the pink and green soft mints she kept in her family room. The mints made my sister and I so happy to be in her presence. The pink peppermints were so endearing to our spirit and kept our faces lit up with smiles. My Aunt’s legacy birthed something in me. It birthed the desire to help women with breast cancer feel beautiful and thrive during their journey. I wanted to create a safe space for women to be loved and supported. Thus, the birth of Pink Peppermint Project was born. Just as mints in my aunt’s home brought joy and solace to me as a child, the Pink Peppermint Project will do the same for our sisters living with the diagnosis of breast cancer.
