Stripes of a Warrior originated as a blog created by, Mindy M. and Tara T., best friends that come from two different backgrounds. Mindy, 33 years old, is a breast cancer Warrior and is now in remission after 336 days of treatments and doctor’s appointments. Tara, 31 years old, has seen cancer from a family member’s and friend’s perspective and has experienced the loss of loved ones due to cancer. They saw the importance of sharing the stories of ALL Warriors, both those who have or had cancer and those who support their loved ones with cancer. After starting the blog they saw the impact and pressure that cancer places on individuals and families FINANCIALLY and that’s when Stripes of a Warrior decided to become a 501(c)(3).
