October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to increase awareness of this disease. To show our support, House Match would like to shine a spotlight on Amy—the owner of the #1 spa in Siesta Key, Siesta Healing - Holistic Spa & Wellness Center.
The House Match team had the pleasure of meeting with Amy at her local spa for an interview and facility tour (full video at the end of this blog). We were immediately greeted with a wave of inspiring and compassionate energy to hear her story. Amy’s journey battling breast cancer has touched our hearts, and we know it will touch yours too.
After a double mastectomy, 33 rounds of radiation, and having 39 lymph nodes removed, Amy continues to motivate others to find joy in life. Her innate joy brings light to everyone she meets, which is a special trait you can only find at Siesta Healing.
So how was Siesta Healing born? The night before Amy underwent a double mastectomy, something unexpected happened. The lucky man who Amy calls her husband persuaded her to travel to the Key as a thoughtful gesture to lift her spirits. Little did Amy know, she would find herself standing in front of Siesta Healing—the spa her husband opened in her honor. He sweetly told her, "You have to beat this thing because you have to help me run this place."
Now, Amy runs the spa with the most supportive team of family (including her mother-in-law, Karen) and friends all with the same goal in mind: helping others heal. Amy believes that helping people is good for both the heart and the soul. And she carries this mindset throughout every aspect of her life.
