Melodie Wilson "A Source of Inspiration"
As I mentioned in yesterday's blog, I was honored to be a part of this year's Susan G. Komen "Race for the Cure." Every year I meet amazing men and women who share poignant stories on dealing with cancer.
Former TMJ4 anchor Melodie Wilson was kind enough to respond to my request for an interview the day of the race. Considering the fact that she's dealing with a second round of cancer, she could have easily ignored me, but she did not. I really wanted the chance to talk to Melodie because I had gotten a number of calls from people wanting to know about her health, or where they should send their well wishes. As president of ABCD (After Breast Cancer Diagnosis), Melodie Wilson has been on the forefront in the battle against this disease.
And as a popular celebrity, she uses the spotlight to encourage early detection and mammograms. Many cancer patients tell me Melodie Wilson inspired them to not give up. It's been said that the true test of a person's character is how they respond during difficult times. I know Melodie Wilson would disagree, but she is a symbol of courage and humanity. We can all learn from her example.
