Anngi Sieger Strick

Founder & Designer for ANNGI ALYNSAN MATEO, CAPhotography by Lauri LevenfeldStory by Lauri Levenfeld

Last year I featured the amazing survival story of Anngi Sieger Strick on TMP. A dear friend and creative, Anngi has always been one of the most inspiring woman in my life. When Anngi was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer 3 1/2 years ago and started her journey towards survival,  my respect and love for Anngi skyrocketed. Her battle to health was/is courageous, positive, and honest. And her ability to be open and connected to not only her dearest, but to the world around her is meaningful and extraordinary. In my eyes, she’s a hero.  In part two, Anngi’s story continues to unfold and inspire as she becomes the mother to a new baby boy via another amazing woman, her gestational surrogate.


Three and a half years ago I was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer.  I have been in remission since my surgery and chemotherapy. We discovered the cancer while I was trying to get pregnant with a second child and every day I think about how fortunate I am that we found it.
