Cindy Russell, owner of "Where The Magic Begins" in Livermore, California has been fighting cancer for a number of years. Her passion for all things Disney was part of what kept her going through some of the earlier tough moments.
She's the expert when it comes to Disney Big Figures and is working on a book on that subject
Sadly, her health has been going downhill lately and she has decided to close the store next month.
She's having a final event at the store on Monday, September 1st with story artist Jeff Pidgeon as her guest.
