Heather Von St. James – Mesothelioma Survivor

A few weeks ago I received an email from Heather asking if we could publish her story and video on our website to help spread the word about mesothelioma,  a rare type of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos and occurs in the thin layer of cells lining the  body’s internal organs.

We are more than happy to help raise awareness about this rare form of cancer and we hope our readers will kindly help us share this post and share Heather’s story.
