SHE WAS GIVEN JUST 15 MONTHS TO LIVE


Heather was a guest blogger on my blog some months back. 

Heather Von St. James is a wife, mother, and mesothelioma cancer survivor. Upon her diagnosis, she vowed to be a source of hope and inspiration for others who found themselves in a similar situation to her own. She carries out her mission to be a beacon of hope for those afflicted with mesothelioma by sharing her story of faith, love and courage.

In 2005 at the age of 36 and only 3 months after giving birth to a beautiful baby girl, Lily, Heather was diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma. Her husband, Cameron and Heather then embarked upon a search to find the best treatment care available. 

Today as a seven year mesothelioma cancer survivor, Heather has made it her mission to help other mesothelioma victims around the globe. 

Heather shares her personal story to help spread hope and awareness for others who are going this, in hopes that one day no one will have to. 

Recently a video was made about her story and her mission to help others. It is a story of hope, of never giving up even when the odds are stacked up against you. There is so much we can learn from her life and her fight against cancer. 

Please see the video I have uploaded below. You can also connect with her at http://www.facebook.com/HeatherVonStJames?fref=ts
