Let me introduce you to Heather. Heather recently contacted me with this note:
“Nine years ago, right before my new baby’s first Christmas, I was diagnosed with malignant pleural mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos.
I am writing to you because this winter, I am using my borrowed time to share my story, in hopes to keep others safe. It would mean the world to me if you’d be willing to lend your voice by writing a post on your blog to help me in the fight against this terrible disease. “
I watched, and was brokenhearted. I can’t imagine. Yet, I was also inspired.
Sometimes it is the simple truths that we need to really stare us in the face. Life is short. Life is unpredictable. Life is not guaranteed.
Perspective matters. We can keep an eternal perspective knowing that life is a gift, and the number of our days are known only to Him.
“We operate from a place of hope, and a place of living in the moment… I’ve been accused my whole life of wearing in rose-colored glasses and living life optimistically…and I have no intention of taking them off.”
Heather Von St. James
Heather’s story is powerful. Please watch and learn more. It is Heather’s desire to spread the word to others, so that they may join in the fight!
