July 26th, National ALL or NOTHING Day!

Today, we share the story of blogger, Heather Von St. James, who was diagnosed with mesothelioma 10 years ago.  She and her husband, Cameron, had just welcomed their precious baby daughter into the world when Heather was given only 15 months to live.

Her cancer was caused by exposure to asbestos fibers on her dads work jacket as a little girl. Mesothelioma is very rare, but usually takes most patients within a year after diagnosis. Luckily, Heather was a candidate for a highly intensive surgery that involved a heather chemotherapy solution, and the removal of one of her lungs.
 
Thankfully, Heather beat the odds and she and her husband, also a blogger, are on a mission to share their story in hopes of helping others and spreading awareness of mesothelioma.

We don't know their religious affiliation - but, kindly, her husband would like to honor her and share her story. We support that (as we're ALL about home and family) and are grateful to know of his deep and abiding love for her and the way in which he is seeking to honor her life and help others.

Because of what they have experienced, they are working to
 "encourage others to live in the moment, and to make the most of each day."

We invite you all to read and share their story on your various sites.

Thanks and....Happy July 26th; National 'All of Nothing Day'; a day to celebrate living life to the fullness.  It's with that in mind that we recognize Heather and her wonderful husband, as well as all of the rest of you who have overcome odds in your life and are striving to live life in a way that is happy, fulfilling, and a blessing and those around you!

Blessings to all!
