High Hopes for Heather

To know Heather is to love her.  And if you know her, you know how she has fought the battle with cancer with optimism and courage. Heather is grace and positivity personified. 

For anyone who doesn't know Heather's story, she was diagnosed with  MBC (Metastatic Breast Cancer) in June of 2016. Every time cancer's presence has reared it's ugly head, Heather has countered, overcame and triumphed.  Enduring treatments, testing, and trials, she has shown up for her family and friends, and hasn't let the grueling schedule keep her down. Most importantly, she has continued to co-parent Jerry, her reason for staying strong.  You would never know, but she has been in pain a lot recently and has learned it  is due to an aggressive strain of cancer in her bones.  Heather will soon begin a new clinical trial and will no doubt endure without complain and continue her journey towards recovery.

In the meantime, Heather is living her life and her friends would like to help make some things easier. Unfortunately, it cost way too much to stay alive.  No one needs to worry about bills when they are fighting for their life, certainly not at Christmas time.  She and Cagney want to give little Jerry the best Christmas, one he deserves. Heather has battled and just needs a little help from her friends.  Please consider giving directly to someone who needs help this Christmas season to stay #HeatStrong! Thank you to everyone who supports our beautiful friend, we are all better for knowing her.  #TeamHeatStrong43960306_1575844268456659_r.jpeg43960306_1575844324304070_r.jpeg43960306_1575843757687931_r.jpeg
