Amanda Peterson

Amanda is a self-proclaimed “spicy girl,” wife, and devoted mother of three school-aged children. She graduated from BYU Idaho, where she met her husband Dan. Amanda says that her children are her legacy. She is also an avid reader and engaged in her local community. Amanda has been battling cancer for over three years.

She has empowered herself by writing her own obituary and planning her funeral as she continues to create a sense of normalcy for her family. She and her husband openly share cancer updates with their children, but struggle to find the line between honest communication and the heartbreaking reality of their mother’s terminal diagnosis.
