I’ve met a number of people over the years through blogging and various parenting and homeschooling forums. It’s pretty cool, getting to know people who are hundreds of miles away, all from the comfort of my home. Today I’d like to introduce you to someone pretty special whom I met through my blog.
This is Heather (and her daughter Lily). She and I are approximately the same age. Doesn’t she have the most beautiful eyes? And her hair! I love her hair! It’s so spiky and fun. And the color is just gorgeous, too. She is far braver than I am, letting her true color show.
But her hair doesn’t even begin to tell you how brave she is.
Heather and I both had babies in August of 2005. When our babies were three months old, Heather and her family got some of the most devastating news one can ever imagine. I could wax on about Heather, but I think I’d like you to just watch this video. It’s only a few minutes long. Don’t worry, it has a happy ending, so please do me a favor and watch. Just click the link, I’ll wait here…
Heather is using her video to bring awareness to this rare cancer. She also hopes to inspire others to cling to hope and to fight through whatever challenges that life may bring. I think we all could use this reminder. I, for one, am glad that Heather is here to do the reminding.
Rock on, Heather. Keep fighting the good fight!
