The Heather Mosher Memorial Fund

Dave and Heather Mosher met in 2015 doing what each of them loved most.  Dancing. 


They started dating and both quickly realized that they had found their other halves.  Their soulmates.  Dave knew that Heather was his Great Love. 

But on December 23, 2016 Heather was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, a very aggressive type of cancer.  Unbeknownst to Heather, December 23, 2016 was also the day that Dave planned on proposing to her.

Undeterred and determined to walk through life with Heather, Dave proposed to her that very night under a streetlight while riding in a horse drawn carriage through their small Connecticut town.

For the next 365 days, Heather fought an incredibly fierce and courageous battle, determined to beat cancer and grow old with Dave, the love of her life.  Heather fought for that year, seeking treatments and second opinions, enduring grueling chemotherapy and radiation treatments while at the same time acting as “bonus mom” to Dave’s two young daughters.  


Through it all, Heather remained a beacon of light in this world and a pillar of unwavering faith and love.

As 2017 moved on, it became clear that despite her tenacity and bravery, Heather was losing her battle.  

On December 22, 2017 Heather’s greatest wish came true.  In front of her family and friends, as well as the doctors and nurses who had cared for her, Heather married Dave in the chapel of St. Francis hospital.

True to her never-quit, fighting spirit, Heather summoned the last bit of strength she possessed and she put on that beautiful ivory white wedding dress for Dave.  

Through the pain of a cancer-ravaged body; through the exhaustion of a year long battle, Heather struggled through the wedding and celebrated with her husband for her next, and final, 18 hours.  Heather Mosher’s last words were her wedding vows to her husband.





Heather’s positive attitude and never give up spirit will live on in the people she touched.
