We grieve with Heather's family....
Tuesday, September 6, 2011
Heather was a powerful force to be reckoned with. She fought cancer with everything she had, with grace, dignity, courage and BOLDNESS. She fought a vicious leukemia for a couple years, undergoing a much needed bone marrow transplant from her brother. But, this weekend, she entered the gates of Heaven with the boldness and courage she lived. She was only 27 years old and leaves behind a small son, age 6 and a devoted fiance, Tommy. She had big dreams and goals, but her son was the most important thing in her life. She so wanted to watch him grow up. Even after her transplant, she fought to secure an early release to watch him get on the bus for the first time, going off to kindergarten.
She attended our Gala this past winter, having a great time, meeting other BOLD women, having photos taken with our celebrity guest, TJ Duckett and having a great time with friends. She was full of life and exuded positive attitude.She was a huge advocate of The Oldham Project
and what we're trying to accomplish!
We now grieve with her family, mother, son and fiance. She was much loved and touched so many lives. She will be missed, but her legacy, attitude and love will live on.
