“Coming back to flowers after cancer had the potential of being too hard. I knew I couldn’t go back to designing alone. I needed colleagues. This is the only way I want to continue in floristy – with a supportive community, sharing, pushing each other to be great, to create art. Perhaps making it easier to create contingency plans is my small way of trying to return the favor of what this industry has given me.” – Lindsay Diminick
Today we’re visiting with Lindsay Diminick, owner of Yellow Twist Floral Design in Portland, Maine and cancer survivor/emergency plan educator to discuss:
Lindsay introduces herself at the Chapel Designers Conference in NYC 2016
The emotions of trying on the symbolic piece she created to honor her cancer journey
Walking the runway at the Chapel Designers Flora & Fauna Fashion Show in NYC wearing the piece she created – she would finish her chemo treatment the following day.
The piece Lindsay created for the Floral & Fauna Fashion Show 2018 benefiting pediatric cancer patients at Hope Flower Farm with Along Comes Hope.
Lindsay walks (with the confidence of a super model!) the runway once again to raise support and awareness for pediatric cancer at Hope Flower Farm with The Chapel Designers
