A letter and update from Danielle

The letter above was written when our mission first began.  My mother's story has inspired many to persevere in their battle against cancer and continues to do so today.  Over the years, we have witnessed so many miracles and amazing triumphs over this disease.  What we initially set out to do was to inspire and help others, but in the process, we ourselves have been blessed so much more.  It has been an inspiration to meet so many cancer patients who have defied the odds or simply had a beautiful story to tell.

 For 20 years, my mother successfully battled breast cancer, in the face of negative test results, statistics and doctors' prognoses.  During this time, her cancer went into remission for almost 15 years.  She was able to witness the birth of three grandchildren, travel around the world, see her youngest child enter medical school, and inspire many. 
 
Sixteen years after my mother's initial diagnosis, her cancer returned.  This time, it was Stage IV, and the cancer had spread throughout her body.  Again, she fought the disease with grace, strength and tenacity.  Given a short prognosis, she lived another four years, defying the most incredible of odds.  She is a testament to what God's grace, modern medicine and the will to live can accomplish.  After fulfilling all of the dreams and goals she had set for herself after her initial diagnosis, she ultimately left this world victoriously. 
 
As we move forward, we continue to emulate the same spirit and heart for serving others that my mother exemplified. At the forefront of every decision we make is our mission: To provide comfort to cancer patients and individuals experiencing hair loss. For the last 20 years, my mother and I have fulfilled this mission by working side by side with our customers. We covet your suggestions, ideas and comments.
 
Through years of experience with cancer patients, I have witnessed that the greatest challenges of our lives bring unexpected gifts, lessons and blessings. Know that my staff and I hold you close in prayer. My personal wish for you is that God’s miracles will manifest in your life in the most meaningful way, bringing you comfort, hope and joy.
 
Sincerely,
Danielle Galland Yates
