Heather Von St. James is a remarkable woman who works to promote awareness of the dangers of asbestos which causes mesothelioma. Heather was diagnosed with this disease at the age of 36, just after the birth of her baby (her daughter was only 3 1/2 months old.) You might be surprised to find out that asbestos is not banned in the USA. (It certainly came as a shock to me!)
April 1-7 is Asbestos Awareness Week. Won't you please take a few moments and see and hear the story about Heather Von St. James? You may find it just here. Once there, be sure to click on her lovely photo to watch the video.
She has such a positive attitude that it reminded me of a story that I have had on my blog before...
Lots of starfish are washed up high and dry on a beach and a woman begins to throw them back into the ocean. A man sees her and says, "What are you doing, are you crazy, there must be hundreds! You can't make any difference, there are too many!"
She picks one up and throws it into the deep water and said, " I made a difference to THAT one!"
Heather, may God bless you for sharing your story and I wish you the best of everything!
