Story of Heather.


"With hope, the odds doesn't matter" 
Heather, now, with 8 years old Lily.

.. and if you were wondering, the story is a courageous inspiring one. Cancer is a dreadful thing. I already lost two of my best friends of it, and they were no more than 25 years old at that time. So that's one problem. Most doctors would shy away at the prospect of cancer because you're so young, you're active, your family doesn't have a history, you don't smoke, you are not exposed to hazardous materials, to put it simply, your chances are small.

Heather was diagnosed when she was only 36 years old and just giving birth to a lovely baby girl. She was diagnosed with a mesothelioma cancer. It is such a mouthful but I try to make it easy for you. Mesothelioma is a cancer that occurs in mesothelium, which is a thin membrane that holds up all your internal organs. It is caused by abestos exposure. What is abestos again? It's a fiber like minerals, mined, mostly used commercially in building construction industry, for roofing, insulation, piping, tiling, and so on. It's even found on (some) automotive's brakes, paints, adhesive materials, plastics, garden product, and even crayons. *gasp. 

Heather got in contact by a secondhand exposure, her dad, often came home in his work clothes, covered in white dust. And as a little girl, unbeknownst to her, she often played with her dad's attire. Upon diagnosed, she was given only 15 months to live. And here she is now, 8 years and counting after winning her battle. 

Take a time to look at her 3 minutes video, or maybe read her courageous blog, or visit The Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog or Mesothelioma Lawyer Centre for more info about the cancer. When I lost my baby Glenn last 2011, I got many many many surviving comrades online, parents who has lost their little angels, and I continuously exchanging emails with some of them, catching up and holding on to each other for support. I can only assure you never underestimate the power of a total stranger's love and compassion. We are extremely lucky to be in this digital limitless era, so make the most of it! Let's build hope, reach out, and raise awareness.
