Thrown into the role of caregiver …

5-31-2013 4-12-30 PMWe received this email, watched the video, and had absolutely no reservation in sharing this – if it helps one person, gives hope to anyone, it’s worth your while to watch this video and share the information.  Thank you for sharing.


I came across your blog and really identified with a lot of your writing.   My name is Cameron Von St. James and I was thrown into the role of caregiver when my wife, Heather was diagnosed with a very rare and deadly cancer called mesothelioma, just three months after the birth of our only child.  We 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, I had to learn quickly to be an effective caregiver, and there were many times when I became overwhelmed and beaten down by the role, but we managed to fight through it together.  We recently participated in a short video about my wife’s cancer experience, which we 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:
I was wondering if you would be interested in sharing this video on your blog? This Sunday is Cancer Survivors Day, and I was hoping that you might help us share our message of hope in honor of the holiday to help spread awareness for this awful cancer. I know that cancer isn’t necessarily the focus of your 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!   I’d love to share this message with your readers who might take something away from it, if you’ll allow it.  Please take a moment to watch our video, and let me know if you think it’s something you’d be interested in sharing on your blog.

Thanks so much for your help!
