WARRIOR OF CANCER
PRAYERS AND LOVE- ACTIVELY FIGHTING
warrior of Colon Cancer
I wanted to share a snip of Monica Urbin;s Bio with you. Monica was diagnosed with Rectal Cancer and fought the fight of her life, and won! Please take this in and remember we are all in this together; and all we need is love...
"In one fell swoop, I lost my home, my business, my relationship and never have felt so alone. During this time, I read the bible and especially 1 Cor 13 which I believe sums up how Christians should act towards God, others and self."
A friend asked me, how did you make it through all that? I couldn't answer right away because I never thought that I had done anything special.
I survived and still love life because of the nurses who would take the time to give a hug, laugh or pray with me, my doctors in LA who never dismissed my concerns and treated me with great knowledge and compassion, the other patients who were suffering more than I that not only made me grateful but compassionate to them, patients who did the same with me, kindness of strangers and friends, God who when I thought I didn't want to do this anymore had to have scooped me up and held me tight, and it all boils down to love!
Having been in the healthcare industry my entire professional life, I have been so blessed to meet so many heroic patients who taught me throughout my life that all that really matters is love. Making it through maybe just a second at a time but you do.
The human spirit including mine has an unbelievable will to survive. That's a beautiful thing to witness and feel yourself!
For Trisha- Warrior of Breast cancer
for you, the world.
From Pam, who made my day with this amazing painting reveal. This is my 'why'!
I would like to take this opportunity to give a special thank you to Aubre for my beautiful painting and all the hard work that she puts into these paintings for the many people out there who are suffering in one way or another. It is such a blessing to know there are people out there who care and take into consideration all of us who may need a little something to brighten our days. Just receiving something in the mail and then having it to look at daily knowing I was nominated and Aubre cared enough to consider my illnesses and lift my spirits brightened my day/days.
I currently suffer with approximately 7 bone diseases including Lupus, fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, degenerative joint disease? cervical disk disease, osteopenia, osteoporosis. I suffer short-term memory loss due to cerebral hemorrhage I suffered from a car accident I had approximately 7-8 years ago. I also have severe migraine history in which my mom gives me injections for monthly.
To look at me, many people may think I am fine. My illnesses are invisible, they cannot be seen. I would like anyone to live in my shoes for a week or even a day and see how it feels. Most days it is pretty unbearable, especially in the colder weather. This just explains a little bit about myself and my medical history. I have been living with all of this and more for about 10 years now and it is no fun.
Again, thank you Aubre for all you do for the Warriors of Life Project. It is an amazing project and I am so happy that I got to be a part of it. I also want to thank Linda May who nominated me for this project. She herself should be nominated as she has been fighting and suffering for years and continues to battle daily with her many illnesses.
Thank you again Aubre for all you do!! You are an amazing lady 💓
The WarPaint Project
Never Fight Alone
My name is Aubre'. I am a mother of four and a pretty normal person who loves God, my family, my work, and my friends. All of my life I've given away my artwork; if you know me personally, you have a painting or ten. I don't stop at artwork, I am a problem-solver who believes that having something that someone else needs, is selfish to keep. If I learn that someone is hurting, I want to help. God gave me a gift ; to paint artwork that's special and meaningful, and for people who deserve more.
I never intended for any of this to happen! This project started with one painting to my best friend Mel whose close family member was diagnosed with cancer. When she called me to talk, we couldn't speak; we sat crying, sobbing, weeping, and I managed to squeak the words, 'it's going to be okay' over and over. At the end of the call I painted an elephant painting; strong, loyal, undeniably 'there'. Her reaction to receiving her painting was so deeply moving that I would need to give this gift again, and again. This project began out of the purest, most loving moment between her and I, her smile is 'why' this began.
Since February 12. 2019 I've found 144 fighters of Childhood Cancer, Breast Cancer, Autism, Down's Syndrome, and very rare illnesses like CDLS, Stone Man, and Willie-Prader. I share their story in their own words with the 'Warrior's Bio' and ask for a painting request. Once the painting is finished it's boxed and shipped, as a GIFT.
In the following pages you'll see Warriors who will inspire you to throw away the dumb stress in your life and make you appreciate the people that you have around you. Here, I celebrate and honor their amazing stories and give each of them a community of nominators, fellow warriors, supporters, and sponsors, who want this Warrior Gift to be an experience. In the GiftBox there are gifts from all over the nation; gifts are shipped to me from artists, authors, cancer survivors, and people who want to be a part of their gift. It's so easy to love these Warriors, and they need it!
Thank you for allowing me to share this with you, to give these Gifts to you, to add your gifts to it, and to see these Warriors of Life experience a gift that says, 'You will Never Fight Alone". I don't know where this is going, I only know this is what I need to be doing. The Warrior GiftBox continues to evolve with new items- there will never be enough. If you would like to help with shipping, materials, or even add gifts to their shipment; let me know!
The last piece of this experience is found on the back of every painting; this is where I write the names of every person who's ever donated, supported, and given to this experience. I also have an area for our 'Fallen Warriors' who watch over this project from heaven. Being able to see how many people gave their time and resources to make this gift happen, is so important. They are NOT alone, I can prove it.
Thank you everyone, this is a journey for sure, we are in this together; I wouldn't have it any other way.
