She is My Hero!

I have been having a hard time getting back into the swing of things around here…in the Studio.  But great motivation…got me going again!

My friend and coach,  Michelle Ward (When I Grow Up Coach) was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at age 32.  Being the Internet Celebrity and overall Amazeballs Person that she is…she decided to “share” her news via a little ditty she wrote and sang with her pink ukelele.  Please read all about her story here.  Her story and her songs have gone viral…and she has been asked to perform in a variety of venues including a few events around New York City.  She is my friend but also my HERO. The upbeat atitude and grace with which she has publically handled this is incredible.   I have made  a couple of pieces of Breast Cancer Art to be auctioned off at her events.

Thank you, Michelle, for giving me this opportunity!
