Recently I connected across the great big blogosphere with one bad mama-jama. Here name is Heather Von St. James and not only is she a fellow mom, but she is also a cancer survivor. When her six-year-old daughter, Lily, was just three and a half months old, just as she was likely feeling grateful to start getting a regular night’s sleep again, Heather was diagnosed with Mesothelioma, a highly aggressive cancer caused by asbestos exposure. 90-95% of those diagnosed with Mesothelioma do not survive—Heather did. And she keeps a blog to tell her story and to be an inspiration to others.
If you’re interested or if you know of someone who would be interested, I’ve posted a link to her blog on mine.
