Heather Von St James | A Mesothelioma Cancer Survivor Story

Cancer is not the focus of this blog, but a positive, uplifting story about overcoming an illness can be a huge help to any sort of caregiver when they're feeling down.

Cameron Von St. James was thrown into the role of caregiver when his wife, Heather, was diagnosed with a very rare and deadly cancer called mesothelioma, just three months after the birth of their only child. They were initially told that she could have less than 15 months to live, but she was able to defy the odds and eventually beat the cancer. During her treatment, Cameron had to learn quickly to be an effective caregiver, and there were many times when he became overwhelmed and beaten down by the role, but he and his wife managed to fight through it together. They recently participated in a short video about his wife's cancer experience, which they hope to use to raise awareness and support for people fighting illness, and the caregivers who fight alongside them. Here is the link to the video:

Virgil Anderson is a lung cancer survivor through the care of the medical professionals at, one of the most comprehensive online resources for mesothelioma asbestos health and safety information. "Heather's story is a testament to the strength and courage of women everywhere, and a beacon of light to the asbestos cancer community," says Virgil.

We send continued well wishes to Virgil and all those who are fighting or have overcome this disease.
