When Heather Von St. James reached out to us we learned about her story and mission and were left seeing so much beautiful. Eight years ago, Heather was diagnosed with mesothelioma; a rare and deadly cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. She had just given birth to her daughter, Lily, and was given 15 short months to live. After a life saving surgery that included the removal of her left lung, she made it her life’s mission to educate people about this deadly disease and it’s cause.
Asbestos Awareness Week April 1-7th. Asbestos has been used for many applications in the past including building materials in homes, office buildings, and naval ships. It is STILL not banned in the United States today.
This year, she's asking bloggers to participate and spread the word about Asbestos Awareness Week by being a Voice for the Victims. Visit her awareness page here: http://www.mesothelioma.
Heather writes, "From awareness grows hope.. Each voice could save a life!" We completely agree and find so much beautiful in her bravery, fight, and work to save others!
Thank you so much, Heather, for sharing your story and working to improve the lives of others!
