I saw correlations to Pink Floyd with 'Tigers Broke Free' ( my Mom always said, 'Go get'em Tiger!'), Pigs on the Wing (our family's steadfast tradition of the Pink Peppermint Pig until this Christmas when cancer put a downer on the whole thing) and referneces in the movie to Nazi Germany. Cancer is our Nazi today, affecting millions.
FLOYDWARRIORS??? 

a play on Pink Floyd and Warriors...because we are!

WHO ARE FLOYD WARRIORS...
A FLOYD WARRIOR is strong, in charge and in control. They are the ones steering the ship. They call their own shots, live life despite any diagnosis and to inspire others. Floydwarriors live with a twinkle in their eye and whether they are 38 or 88, they want to live every day! 

My Mom, Irene, was the inspiration for FLOYDWARRIORS. She was diagnosed at 68 with stage 4 breast cancer that had spread to her bones. She lived every single day to the fullest until the day she chose to shed the beautiful evening gown, her body, the night she passed on. She was 80 years old. 

My Mom had cancer, but cancer didn't have her. She was the absolute perfect role model so when I was diagnosed I already knew how to be strong, in charge and in control- she showed me. I thank God she she had passed before I found out about my cancer...but then, I don't think she would have worried. She always made me feel like there was nothing I couldn't do- I'm sure, including cancer. 
My Mom pictured here is the inspiration for everything I do. She looked good-always! This was taken driving to the airport, going to Vegas for our last trip in April...six months before she passed away. She was Steady Eddy with the lipstick- as I jerked the car around.

'Helping families cope with cancer, one household at a time' TM
October 17th, 2008 my Mom & very Best Friend passed away after 12 years of living with Stage 4 breast cancer. She was 80 years old. I had an very incredible encounter with an Angel that day, that forever changed my life. While she helped with my Mom's passing- I knew she was coming for me and I would be an atheist no longer.

8 weeks later, on December 23rd, my surgeon told me I had cancer. I had an 8 cm tumor that spread to 11/16 lymph nodes...and a 1 year old baby, surgery, months of treatment ahead...

He assured there were a lot of support groups available. My immediate reaction was, "But how will I put food on my table, clean and take care of my family?" He said nothing like that, as far as he knew, existed.
"I guess I'll have to start that organization!" I promised. 

I saw this moment as my mission, a very rare opportunity to share with the world how God is alive and well and living through us. While at St. Peter's Hospital for a bilateral mastectomy I was totally inspired to create this organization called floydwarriors.com -an inspirational healing ministry and resource center to facilitate volunteers helping newly diagnosed cancer patients. The day after surgery, January 10th I drafted all my pages of floydwarriors.com.

​This organization is in honor of my Mom- a tribute to the best homemaker and Mom a family could be blessed with. Her legacy lives on in the homes we serve - cooking, cleaning and loving babies while their parent is busy getting well. 

I love you Mom~ forever and a day. Your baby, Lisa
