Lung Leavin' Day

“Do one thing every day that scares you.” 
― Eleanor Roosevelt

Everyone has dreams, hopes, desires, and fears. Recently I was contacted by a kind man asking that I check out his wife's story. His wife, Heather, was diagnosed with mesothelioma--a form of cancer caused by asbestos--just three months after the birth of their daughter. Given 15 months to live, Heather's courageous battle is inspiring to say the least. Her lung was removed but her optimism, focus, and strength intensified. 

Heather's Family

Lung Leavin' Day is celebrated on February 2nd each year and it's about overcoming your fears. Participants write their fears on a plate and then throw them--smashing their fears. This was the 8th year of plate fear smashing. Heather has made it her mission to help other mesothelioma victims around the globe as well as to bring awareness. Please take a moment to virtually write your fear on a plate and then smash it to smithereens by visiting the Lung Leavin' Day's page.
