Heather | A Mesothelioma Cancer Survivor Story

As the arrival of our little guy draws near Heather's Story has been so moving to me! Three months after giving birth to her daughter Lily she was diagnosed with malignant Pleural Mesothelioma, a rare cancer that affects the lining of the lungs. The joyous "firsts" that every mom looks forward to as their newborn begins to grow were taken from her as she was given 15 months to live but the Lord had other plans...

Heather found a group of specialists through the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance and she recently celebrated Lily's 8th birthday! Her faith and maternal instinct to be there for her daughter helped her through the process of treatments and healing.

She now is an inspiration to many families and victims suffering from Mesothelioma. She shares her personal story to bring hope and awareness.

You and I may not be going through what Heather went through but her story is a beautiful reminder of God's word and faithfulness. She was given 15 months to live and look at the plans the Lord had for her! She talks about wearing "rose colored glasses" that help her see life optimistically, I believe you and I can also wear rose colored glasses that will help us see the true plans the Lord has for us!

For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope" Jeremiah 29:11
