Today I wanted to introduce you to a blogger from the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance. She emailed me awhile back and asked if she could put a button up on my site, at first I was skeptical, but when I went to read her story I was blown away! She is an amazing woman with tremendous strength and I was immediately taken with her. It is with pleasure I would like to introduce you to Heather Von St. James.
Welcome to the Make a Friend Monday blog hop, I hope everyone had a great weekend! Monday is usually a day filled with things that are not much fun, so why not take a short break and get to know a new blogger. Please stop by the featured bloggers site and say hi, the check out as many of the other blogs as you like, let them know you found them here. Just grab the hop button for your blog from the bottom of this post or the sidebar. Link up and have fun meeting new folks.
Tell us a little about yourself and your blog or blogs:
I am a 6 year survivor of malignant pleural mesothelioma... a cancer that is almost always caused by asbestos exposure. I started blogging for mesothelioma.com to share my story, to give hope to others who are facing a mesothelioma or ANY cancer diagnosis.. It is my hope that through reading my story, that more awareness to the disease is brought about as well.
What do you consider your greatest personal achievement? Beating cancer.. 6 years!!!!
Where is your favorite place to hang out on the internet? Facebook... I spend far too much time on it.
If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would that be? Ellen Degeneres.. she is the embodiment of all I strive to be.. positive, happy, loving. genuine.. and loves helping people.
If you could have any job you wanted, what would it be? A Travel and Spa writer... travel around to different spas and destination spas and write articles about them.. Heaven!!!!
Favorite movie or TV show? My all time favorite movie is Auntie Mame.. the one with Rosilind Russel... an oldie but goodie... I don't watch much TV, but when I do, it is usually kids shows.. I have a 6 year old daughter.

"then both my computers ~ yes plural ~ BOTH decided to give me problems."
Don't you hate that?
Between me and my husband, we pretty much collect computers. (I work from home for an elearning company and he works for Cisco, so...par for the course. We have six functioning computers between us.)
And I've had days where damn near all of them seem to have gremlins. I'm pretty sure those are the days I should just give up and open a notebook.
I am so glad you stopped back this week! :) I think I am greatful I don't have 6 computers, I think its bad enough on mornings like this one with just the two of them. Hope you are having a great week! :)Delete
