I am going to tell you about one of the strongest, kind-hearted young ladies I know because she is in desperate need of your help and prayers. Heather Simmons is 21 years old, and is recently engaged to Jordon Baltz and was getting ready to start her new life. She was going to college full time while holding down a full-time job as well. A few weeks ago, Heather went to the doctor one day fully expecting that she would return home, and back to her normal life later that same evening. But, that’s not how things turned out.

Heather is now facing a life-threatening illness and is embarking on the fight of her life. She needs your prayers and she needs your support. Heather is completely independent, and she works hard to provide for herself, and has for a long time. Unfortunately, her illness has left her unable to provide for herself and she needs each and every one of you to support her and to pray for her. I know Fairview people and I know that we can and should do anything we can to help this young lady. This diagnosis has put her in a position that no one deserves to be in, but especially not at such a young age and she needs our help.

This will not be an easy fight for Heather, but I believe that this community can come together and help remove some of her worries, so she can focus all of her energy on getting well. Heather is preparing for transport to St. Jude’s in Memphis where we know she will have the best possible chance of beating this. Heather is a fighter and she deserves the best possible care she can get and everyone who has the pleasure of knowing her wants that for her.

It is our goal to make sure that during treatment and upcoming surgeries that she is able to maintain all of her financial responsibilities without worry. Fairview, lets show this young lady that we are behind her 100%! We need young women like her in our community. Please keep her in your daily prayers and truly every little bit helps! Donations can be made in Heathers name at First Bank in Fairview, and we have also set up a GoFundMe (see the link below).
