Woman of Strength


I just wanted to highlight a really amazing woman whom I’ve had the pleasure of being introduced to. Her courageousness is infectious, and her strength is admirable. She is a really compassionate, kindhearted woman who enjoys life to the fullest and makes the most out of ever opportunity.  And while her story doesn’t necessarily comment on the subject matter of my blog, I felt that it would be appropriate to highlight her strength and endurance as a woman dealing with the various issues of life.

Her name is Heather Von St. James, and she is a cancer survivor. She’s a wife, mother, and daughter. Back in 2005, over the course of a year she gave birth, was diagnosed with Mesothelioma, underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatments, and was nursed back to complete health; all the while maintaining a positive attitude and hopeful presence in the lives of her family member. You can read more about her story here, but I just wanted to highlight a really great person!

And as I said before, while her story doesn’t necessarily relate to the content of this blog, at the end of the day if we can’t support others and highlight their successes and strengths than what is there to life? We should be able to laugh with others when they laugh, and to allow them to lean on us when they are weak.

Heather has been the epitome of courage and strength and her success should be applauded as such. So here’s to you Heather; congratulations on making it through such a trying and difficult time in your life, and here’s to hoping you have many, many more healthy years ahead of you!
