Since Pinked Perspective would never function with just me, I feel the need to start introducing you to some key players behind this ministry of supporting those facing a breast cancer diagnosis.
Today I am introducing you to my friend, Wendy!
Many of the sweetest moments of Pinked Perspective at our Think Pink Events over the last 3 years have been captured on camera by this truly talented lady. Occasionally she makes her way on the other side of the camera as you see above. Our story of friendship is sweet and worth hearing over a cup of coffee, but in short, it came through adversity. I first met Wendy where she works with her husband, Dr. Preslan who surgically corrected a condition of my daughter’s eye in 2015 . (I wrote a blog post all about that a few years ago and you can find it HERE). But then Wendy and I found an even deeper friendship in mourning the loss of our dear mutual friend Stef to Ovarian Cancer in May of 2017. The Lord has weaved our lives together through circumstances that were without a doubt NOT coincidences. Wendy is a self-proclaimed “fixer”; and within her large family, she has many opportunities to live up to that claim as it is often NanaSue (as she likes to be called by her 4 grandkids) to the rescue. She will tell you, it is to a fault sometimes and is working on how to surrender and let go of her urge to always fix. I encourage her in this, but I also must admit that I often really appreciate her fixes. She helped me put “kit nights” into effect in the basement of her home when I couldn’t keep up with the number of kit requests coming in and then allowed me to store assembled kits on a shelf there for over a year. When it seemed I was running to Wendy’s every other day to get a kit ready to ship, we brought the kits back to my home to be stored. She then helped me put shelves together and get my basement all set up for it. Wendy is truly generous with her time, her thoughtfulness, her cooking, and her photography. And Pinked Perspective so appreciates her.
Wendy has also recently started to share her gifts of photography and compassion together in a non-profit that she started called NanaSue Photography~Healing Images. You must check out her website and consider getting involved with what she is doing!
