Inspired by Heather

Every year 3000 people are diagnosed with
mesothelioma 
Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer,
it affects the membrane of the lungs and abdomen.
It is the most serious of the asbestos-related diseases.

Being exposed to asbestosis the primary cause and the
primary risk factor.

These are some lesser known facts about asbestos:

-Asbestos is still not banned US. About 30 million pounds are used every year.

-It can still be found in many homes, schools, commercial or industrial building.

-Ever after 30 years after its peak of use, asbestos is still number one of causing occupational cancer in the US.


Why I am writing about this?
Well recently I was contacted by a brave woman named Heather
She was diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma.
She was given 15 months to live.
But she was determined not to let the disease win.
That she was going to fight back. And she did.
With the help of her husband she went searching to find the best
treatment there is.
And she found it by the name of Dr. David Sugarbaker.
After a hard battle, Heather is with us today and proudly and deservingly
calls herself a nine-year mesothelioma cancer survivor.
She defeated a dangerous and vicious disease to be among us today
and help to raise awareness and ultimately save lives.

 Here is Heather today with her family.
