Featuring Melinda Stallings
HerNature asked Melinda, “What woman has inspired you to be the real you?”
I thank God every day for Carey McLean, the truest of friends.
Survivor of a rare cancer diagnosed in her 30s, she is a force to be reckoned with and an example of inspiring positive possibilities.
Carey and I attended a lot of conferences and masterminds together going back to 2009 when we met in Los Angeles. We had an instant connection and have been there for each other ever since in tough times and fun times.
Watching someone that young and full of promise not let cancer jade her—that was my wow.
I’m in awe of Carey and how she defied death. She was a zealot about researching what was happening with her body. She found ways to remain as holistic as possible to enhance her healing.
She stayed focused on the positive.
Watching someone that young and full of promise not let cancer jade her—that was my wow. She strengthens my resolve to live my life to the fullest.
