Hi again! This is Heather Von St. James, you posted my story a while back on your blog. I hope things are going well! The reason I’m reaching back out is because there has been a video made about my story and my mission to spread hope to others. If you’re interested, I think it would be a great follow-up for your readers who saw the original post from me. My mission here is truly to spread hope to those who need it, and this video could not be a better testament to my goal. I believe I am a perfect example that with hope, the odds don’t matter. I hope you will watch and (please!) share if you enjoy it! You can find the video here: http://www.mesothelioma.com/heather
Thank you so much, and please let me know what you think of the video!
