Heidi got her mammogram results back in late March, and was informed that she had a suspicious-looking mass in one of her breasts. A biopsy confirmed stage 1 breast cancer. After finding no genetic predisposition for cancer, and no additional cancerous spots beyond the localized mass, Heidi has decided to have a lumpectomy on April 22nd followed by six weeks of radiation treatment (and possibly chemotherapy, depending on whether or not there is cancer in the lymph nodes, which will be determined at the time of the surgery).

There are several ways you can help Heidi and Jason and the girls during this process:
- Send them loving thoughts and prayers for strength and healing
- Donate money to help Heidi pay for medical co-pays, complementary medical treatment such as nutritional counseling and naturpathy, grocery bills, and extra support with household chores and tasks. See: http://www.gofundme.com/evy5wvms
- Provide nourishing meals with lots of veggies and love during her surgery recovery and during radiation treatments. See: https://www.mealtrain.com/trains/rv0542
- Give her rides to doctor´s appointments or help transport the girls to school and activities. You can sign up for this below on the "tasks from Heidi´s planner" section
Thank you for your support for this amazing woman!
