Mindy departed this world at the tender age of 23 on June 26, 2007. Cancer was the cause of death, however, Mindy did not allow cancer to take her life. She lived every minute as she fought a valiant fight. During this battle of a little over two years, Mindy continued to attend college. Paralyzed from the chest down in the last couple of months of her life, and in a wheelchair, Mindy only lacked a few hours to complete her bachelor's degree from the University of New Orleans. U.N.O. allowed Mindy to graduate in May, 2007. Tragically, a little over a month later, Mindy took her last breath. Our family and friends are now dedicated to making sure that Mindy did not die in vain. The zest for life that Mindy possessed will never be forgotten as we raise money to support a scholarship fund and help to provide more research in the area of bone cancer.
