Wings of Angels

wingsThis month’s post in the”New Beginnings” series is from Linda Fisher, a breast cancer survivor who founded a business, Wings of Angels, inspired by her experiences during recovery.

When I was forty, I was told that I had breast cancer. That day – that moment – changed my life forever.

My thoughts were suddenly focused on so many questions.  How long do I have?  What about this, and what about that?  It was a long while before I was able to think about something other than cancer.

During that time, I crossed paths with a beautiful lady named Lisa.  She gave me the strength I needed to help me put my life back together. I remember asking her if my life would ever get back to a point where I can smile again…even laugh. Lisa had already gone through this ordeal herself, and she was happy to tell me that I would indeed enjoy life again, smile, laugh, and so much more! I remember how those words sounded and thinking “I HOPE she is right.”  Well, it is my pleasure to share with you that she was right.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer, it does not mean life is over. It took me a while to figure it out, but eventually I realized that this was actually a strengthening experience for me.

Lisa gave me support and encouragement when I needed it most. Now I want to help others who face the challenges of breast cancer, other illnesses, recovery, even loss. That’s why I founded Wings of Angels – to provide support and comfort to individuals dealing with life’s most challenging times.

During my recovery time, I received many beautiful gifts and was very thankful for them. However  there were more items I needed to make me feel better. This is when the seed started that someday I would start a business that would help women get through their recovery time.  My purpose in starting the business..spare women  recovering from breast cancer surgery some of the discomforts that I went through.

In 2008, I took a business course, joined our local Lancaster Chamber of Commerce, and got a business coach. After my website was competed in 2009 I opened my business…my dream.

My business, Wings of Angels, is all about gift baskets filled with items carefully selected by me, items to soothe and comfort the healing body, mind and soul. My mission is to spare women some of the discomfort I went through when I came home from the hospital after my surgery.

I’ve been given the gift of life. When I send out a gift basket, I like to think I am passing a gift of comfort and hope along to a woman recovering from breast cancer surgery.
