Sharing and Supporting

Goodness, time is still flying! 

A little bit back I received an email from an amazing woman.  (After I googled her and looked lots of stuff up, because sometimes I get spam mail...just being real.)  And this lady is for real, she even replied to my email.  (Thanks Heather!)  I am in awe.  Speechless.  She's truly inspiring.

Since her story is out there, I will share what Heather Von St James wrote in her email:

"I am 44 and a mother to a quirky little 7 year old, Lily. She is my only child, and my whole world. When Lily was just 3 1/2 months old, I was diagnosed with mesothelioma; a type of cancer that kills most people within 2 years. As I’m sure you can imagine, the first thing that came to mind when I was diagnosed was my baby girl and how I wasn’t going to be able to watch her grow up.
After intense treatment and recovery, I’m still here 7 years later and cancer free! My journey with cancer was a terrifying one and I'd like to turn my pain into purpose and become someone that other people can look to for guidance, inspiration, and hope in situations like my own. My husband and I recently participated in a short video about my experience with cancer and I contacted you because I feel that your blog would be an excellent place to share. I’m hoping to use this video as a tool to raise awareness of this horrible little known cancer that is such a deadly killer (and sadly, 100% preventable)."

I am happy to support Heather and get her video out, even if it is to only a few.  This mama's heartstrings were tugged by another mama and I'm happy to help out in even the smallest way.

You can check out Heather's video at: http://www.mesothelioma.com/heather . 

Please check it out. And go hug your loved ones or send them some love.
