About Pinky Pie
Pinky Pie is Susan T. Hessel, a writer, personal historian and collector of stories in Wisconsin.
I call my business Lessons From Life because I believe that everyone learns things in life that should be passed on to others. So this is it. I’m sharing my breast cancer journey to anyone who is willing to listen.
When I was little, I was my mother’s Little Pinky Pie. Frankly, my world was pink and I hated it. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to accept pink in my life and get a kick out of it. I wear it at times as a tribute to the mom who outpinked me as a kid.
I also had been aware of the pink associated with breast cancer and have been amused by it.
Since I am now one of those breast cancer patients, I’ve decided to embrace my pink side and be Big Pinky Pie. I hope to maintain my sense of humor through it all and this is one way I’ll do it.
