Did you know that May is National Cancer Research Month? Me either, until the lovely Heather Von St. James contacted me. She has humbly asked me to share her story.
This amazing woman was diagnosed with mesothelioma at age 36 and given 15 months to live. She beat the odds, and has now made it her mission in life to raise awareness about this rare, preventable disease. This very aggressive type of cancer has no cure, and that the amount of research being done for it is ridiculously lacking. The only known cause for meso is being exposed to asbestos – which is far from being banned.
Thank you, friends.
