We are pleased to bring you an inspirational five-part video series featuring Micky Stewart, a breast cancer survivor turned blogger, who uses her experience to inspire others whose lives have been impacted by cancer. Follow along Micky's journey with us for the next five weeks, as we share new videos here, and on Facebook.
Micky Stewart is an orthoptist by trade (pediatric eye specialist), wife to Marcus and mother to Maverick and Madison. At the young age of 31, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, just four months after delivering her baby girl. As someone who works out and strives to eat healthy, she was shocked that something like this could happen to her. It was then that she realized that she had the power to decide what to do with the news. She could lose all hope, or she could fight. She decided to step out on faith and fight. Quickly realizing that she was not on this difficult journey alone, Micky resolved to take others along with her and use her experiences to inspire them to be fighters too.
That is how “Micky’s Tiara” was born.
Micky says, "I want people of all walks of life to know that there is an inner strength deep down inside of us that we never knew existed until challenges like this arise. I know God is on my side and I truly believe that there is a reason this happened to me. I am not going to be a victim or let breast cancer define who I am. I will do my best to reach as many women as possible. I want women to feel free to be BRAVE, BOLD, BEAUTIFUL, and most importantly to BEAT BREAST CANCER!
"We all have a light inside of us that makes us beautiful. We are deserving of the Tiara! Micky’s Tiara serves to embrace those impacted by cancer by helping them to feel energized, empowered, and encouraged. Micky’s Tiara seeks to provide a platform for breast cancer awareness while appreciating each person’s unique and individual story. Please, feel free to contact me. I have a passion for sharing my story and motivating others. I love to hear stories of other fighters, survivors, or loved ones affected by someone with breast cancer. We are all in this together!"
