Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. 
In mid-April, Heather received the devastating news that she has brain and spine cancer. Heather courageously battled breast cancer in 2016 and this new diagnosis is a reoccurrence of the breast cancer in her central nervous system.  Heather is a bright ray of sunshine to all those around her.  She is a beloved mother, wife, daughter, sister, educator, swim and water polo coach, and friend.  
She was originally told there was nothing they could do, but upon further consultation with her doctors, they have found immunotherapy, radiation, and other treatment options may help prolong her life. While her diagnosis is considered terminal, she is following the treatment plan and also consulting with doctors from around the country in hopes to give her as much time as possible.
We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
