Survivor, Breast Cancer

Sara Olsher is the Founder of Mighty + Bright. Sara Olsher, mom to a little girl with a big personality, wearer of cowboy boots, and drinker of exceptionally strong coffee. In 2012, she packed up her 18 month old and left her marriage. What followed was about four years of intense personal growth and the birth of Mighty + Bright.

Then in 2017, Sara was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer at the age of 34. Rather than choosing to keep her daughter in the dark, Sara explained the diagnosis and treatment process to her six year-old, included her throughout the year of healing, and documented her journey through cancer on her blog.

She started Mighty + Bright for the same reason many parents start companies: because she wanted to help her own daughter and invented a product to do it. But since then, it’s become so much more. Sara has seen firsthand that the universe can deal some pretty harsh blows. As parents, we want nothing more than to see our children thrive – and nothing is more painful than knowing that we can’t fix everything when things go wrong.

You can find Sara on Facebook (you can follow her) and Instagram.
