Today, I would like to share with you a touching story about Heather, a mum + a cancer patient. I hope you find inspiration in her battle + her heart-warming tale of overcoming this dark moment in her life. May you also find the time of day to pray for her + the other people battling with cancers all around the world.
And so her story goes:
On November 21, 2005 I was a mother to a 3-½ month old girl. My life was changed when I became a cancer patient. After I was diagnosed, a lot went through my mind. I was especially worried about who would take care of my daughter, Lily. I come from a very supportive family and my parents offered to help. Even though they live 600 miles away, when we needed them, they did not hesitate to get in their car and come to our assistance. As a family, we sat down and decided what to do.
In the hospital in St. Paul, an x-ray detected that I had fluid surrounding my lung. The next step was to see a thoracic specialist. The specialist drained the fluid from my lung and isolated the cause of the fluid. I underwent a C.T scan that detected a mass located in the lower left part of one of my lungs. I was scheduled for a biopsy the next morning. The biopsy results concluded that I had a form of cancer called malignant pleural mesothelioma. We had to decide what to do.
