Motivational Monday - October 14, 2013

Good Morning!!!  Here is your "Motivational Monday"...

...but today, I would also like to "add" to this by introducing you someone who, one could say, epitomizes the words in this picture.

Heather Von St. James, was just 36 years old when she received news that changed her life forever, definitely one of those "other times rough..." moments in her life.  At the time she was a new mom, her daughter just over 3 months old, and she received a life changing diagnosis of Pleural Mesothelioma.  She beat the odds she was given, and is now a cancer survivor for over seven years, her daughter recently turned 8, and she has gone on to be an outspoken advocate for those affected with mesothelioma.  She has made it her mission to use her story to raise awareness of mesothelioma, and to provide a sense of hope for other's facing difficult challenges in their lives.

While I have heard of mesothelioma, I know very little about it, but I welcome the chance to learn about it and share with all of you about it.  When Heather reached out to me she told me how she held on to hope during her journey, as "hope makes the battle easier".  Life isn't always easy, and sometimes we go through our own "other times rough..." moments, Heather faced hers with faith, love and courage and came out strong.  I hope that you will find inspiration in Heather's story, as I have.

This is Heather's Story:
