Are you in a storm?

Do you Need Encouragement?

Are you or someone you know in a storm? The saying goes, we’re either getting ready to go into a storm, are in the middle of a storm, or coming out of a storm. Maybe your storm is a battle with cancer, loss of a loved one, a troubled child, the isolation/impact of the pandemic or maybe it’s getting through the day!

SUNSHINE WARRIOR is a community that comes together to share stories, lift others up, inspire and give hope on both sunny days and life’s storms. 

The concept of SUNSHINE WARRIOR came to mind, when founder of Sunshine Warrior, Kelly Zitlow, was with her mother, Candy, as her mother shared she had stage 4 cancer. “While I fell apart when I heard the news, I couldn’t believe the grace, strength and contagious, reassuring smile my mom had in such a dark moment. Who does that?? Sunshine Warriors!!"

Some days you just have to create

What is a

Sunshine Warrior?

A Sunshine Warrior confronts challenges with grace and humility while never loosing sight of their God given purpose.


They show up big in life, love unconditionally and

lift those around them up.


A Sunshine Warrior is a beacon of light in the midst of a storm, one who brings peace, love, inspiration and strength to the world. 



In Loving Memory, Candy Hunt
