    Heather, you keep touching my heart or I should say taking holding and never letting go. Your beauty inside and out is an inspiration for everyone that has met you or heard about your journey in over-coming cancer. You make me want to become a better person and I truely thank you for that. My grandchildren and son are very blessed to have you.

    Love,
    Pat

    You melt my heart. You are such an awesome person and I am so proud of you. Watching you battle cancer brings on so many emotions, so much turmoil, but so much love for you and pride in you.

    Thank you for being a fighter. And thank you for all the dandelions you gave me as a little girl.

    I have no words to do justice to all I feel. I love you, little girl.

    Your friend, Mom

    Heather – so inspired by your story! So much more fun to be a fighter – you can beat this and in the process your children will learn so much about life and what a special lady you truly are!
