Pleural mesothelioma was her official diagnosis.
A fast-moving cancer of the chest, often associated with prolonged asbestos exposure, it is often fatal within a year.
Heather heroically beat this diagnosis and has been cancer-free since 2006.
Her husband contacted me and I was so inspired by her beautiful story that I knew I had to share it. She now spends her time spreading encouraging and awareness for those battling difficult and life-altering situations and illnesses.
I also hope that it inspires you to seek holistic treatment to help heal from this disease that now touches almost half of the population.
I have lost 3 grandparents to deaths directly caused by conventional medical cancer treatments – all after remission – and am not an advocate of them. The devastation that it wreaked and the raw loss in my life was one of the main catalysts to me pursuing a career in holistic healing.
