Review for Pink Warrior Angels, Copperas Cove, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Angels on Earth ... who truly are Warriors. I am writing this in memorium of my dear friend and pink sister, Melody Tolar. Melody ... fought "the monster" which is breast cancer with all of her might. She earned her angel wings in November of 2016. I will NEVER say she lost her battle..to do so would be an injustice to how hard Melody fought. Jen Reynolds, Melody and I knew each other, as fellow breast cancer Survivors. Melody and Jen were fellow BFF's (young breast cancer survivors). I reached out to Jen and Pink Warrior Angels when Melody and her family contacted me as they were in need of assistance with legal documents such as Medical POA. They needed Legal Advice and a lawyer. I contacted Jen and Pink Warrior Angels to see if she could recommend the services of someone. I also explained to Jen that Melody's cancer had advanced and that she was in need of some extra special TLC from her Pink Sister Community. Jen Reynolds and PWA worked with Melody's family and found proper legal representation so that all the proper paper work could be executed. I was a witness to Melody signing those papers ... one of the most bittersweet moments of my life. Jen Reynolds "rallied the survivor sister troups" around Melody and made sure that the last months of her life were filled with love...support and most importantly prayer. The most beautiful "gift" given to Melody was a day of pampering for she and her mom, Charlotte. PWA helped to arrange this with the help of the beautiful Ms. Jovannah with Beauty on The Bus . Jen, Dez and I spent the day with our beautiful Melody and her mom, her caregiver. This is the last time I "saw" my dear friend Melody. She was happy and laughing as her makeup and nails were being done. She was treated like the beautiful, brave Princess she was. We listened to her favorite Japanese music as she enjoyed her Japanese soda and candy. We gathered for a photo.. making sure her fiery red wig was on just right.. as our Melody was very "Melticulous '. I will never forget that day as her loving father carried her to and from the bus. We... Warriors did all we could to be strong for Melody that day and fought back tears. We wanted that day to be joyful for her, and it was as her photo is proof of that. We never imagined that Melody would pass away just a week later. Jen and many of the Angels were there for Melody those final days, gathering to show their love and support and praying, which gave Mel great comfort. Thank you PWA for all you did for our sweet pink sister Melody (HnM's ELSA). Thank you for embracing all women who fight "the monster" .
