With hope, odds don't matter - one mum's amazing story of overcoming against all odds

Some time ago, I posted Heather Von St James' story of surviving mesothelioma.  Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer related to asbestos exposure.  Heather was a new mum, with a newborn, and had to battle this disease along with all the pressures that a new mum also has to tackle.  She was given a grim diagnosis and there was little expectation that she would be able to live long enough to be a mother to your new baby.  

But Heather did what strong women do.  She took on the impossible challenge ahead of her and found strength inside that exceeded everyone's expectations.  We all could use inspiration to find our own inner strength, so have a look at this brief video about Heather's journey.
