Heather Von St. James
Heather Von St. James is the young mom of Lily – who will turn seven in a couple of week -- and wife of Cameron. Heather owned and operated a successful hair salon in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minnesota, when, shortly after Lily was born in 2005, she was diagnosed with malignant pleural mesothelioma. Since then, she had to give up her business, but she has become an accomplished speaker, a blogger, and a tireless advocate for a disease she didn’t even know existed seven years ago. Heather is a dear and respected friend of the Meso Foundation where she's known for bringing hope and sunshine to all she encounters.
