One important thing cancer taught Heather is the importance of acknowledging these apprehensions that prevent us from living life to the fullest extent.
8 years ago on February 2, Heather underwent a risky surgery to remove a lung... and it worked! She now celebrates her "Lung Leavin' Day" with her family, when each year they get together and write their fears onto plates and smash them into a bonfire.
I love Heather's approach to life and about verbalizing her fears and literally smashing them into a billion pieces. And burning them up. Take that, fear. *fist pump*
Want to participate virtually in some good-ole fashioned plate smashing of your own? Go to her virtual Lung Leavin' Day page, type your fears on a plate and smash it to oblivion. I participated.
