UPDATE August 2021: Teresa Coluchi has since passed away, the warrior lives on in our hearts, mind and soul.
Tell me what do you do when you’ve done all you can
And it seems like you can’t make it through? Child, you just stand, you just stand, stand
Don’t you dare give up through the storm
Stand through the rain
Through the hurt
Yeah, through the pain
A song by Donnie McClurkin that I have relied on numerous times to get me through a funk. It is also the song that comes to mind whenever I think of Teresa and the many trials life has thrown her way.
A mother of 3, a wife, daughter, sister, friend and warrior! When she contacted me about her session, she expressed how important dressing as a Wakanda warrior meant to her. This was her second time fighting cancer, a different and much more aggressive one, at that, and so she needed to document it . Looking back, I am so thankful she brought me along on this journey.
When I showed up to the session I was completely shocked at how much detail and effort she put into the LOOK! From head to toe, she was in full Wakanda mode. I realized then, she was externally showing what and whom she was on the inside. AMAZING!!!
I don’t know what you are going through and how you’re making out, whatever it is and wherever you are on that journey, I wish you nothing but the best! Peace, love and triumph!
