Heather Von St James is a Mesothelioma survivor. Reading about Heather’s story reminded me of Kriss Carr’s. These are women that were diagnosed with cancers and said ‘No’ to the diagnosis presented to them. They did not accept someone else’s version of their lives, and were brave enough to create whole new reality for themselves.


They both have defied the odds and are inspirations.


I hope we all are brave enough to say no to anyone’s version of our lives we do not like, and are bold enough to create the lives we want.
