When Heather emailed me about guest posting about her battle with Mesothelioma, I decided to agree right away. I know this isn't craft related, but I think it is important to help spread awareness. I hope you'll read Heather's story and if you want to learn more you can visit her blog.
Many of you may have heard the saying “it takes a village” which means that in the best and worst of times, you can count on loved ones to surround you. My time of joy came on August 4th, 2005 when my daughter Lily was born through an emergency C-section. I went through a normal uneventful pregnancy without complication. During this joyous event, we were surrounded by our “village” – my parents, my husband’s family and many friends who came by to see Lily and congratulate us. With such a perfect event in our lives, we could never be prepared for the upcoming days of turmoil.
