Heather Von St. James & her daughter, Lily

This is not a funny post, but instead it is a post about hope & ridding yourself of fears.  Nine years ago, when her daughter was three months old, Heather was diagnosed with mesothelioma & was given fifteen months to live.  Following is part of an email she sent to another blogger:

When I was diagnosed with mesothelioma https://mesothelioma.net/mesothelioma-diagnosis/, as a new mother, I was full of fear. I was only given 15 months to live, and had to undergo a life changing procedure. On February 2nd I had my lung removed, which my sister declared Lung Leavin' Day. We celebrate it every year by writing our biggest fears on a plate, and smashing them into a fire. LungLeavin’ Day grows bigger every year, and I was hoping that you’d be willing to help with this inspiring movement. We are asking a select few bloggers to use their voice to help build hope and awareness. An interactive page has been created to tell my story.

In this video Heather tells her story.

I suggest you go to her interactive page
& leave your fears there.
