My name is Heather, I’m 24 years old with terminal cancer. I have small lymphocytic lymphoma which was diagnosed a while ago, and I’ve been battling non stop since. I also have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, a Functional GI disorder, a Functional Neurological Disorder, and seizures. Many of these were caused by the harsh treatments I’ve received. I’m married to my high school sweetheart and we’ve been together for nearly 8 years. He was active duty military for the first four of our relationship. I have an English Cream Golden Retriever named Biscuit who is 4, and continuously saves my life with alerts (but also cuddles 🥰).

 

I was treated at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta until I aged out, and now I’m treated at Emory and the Mayo Clinic in Florida. We come to Mayo about once a month for tests and treatments. I went to the University of North Georgia and received my bachelors in Kinesiology. I continued my education there and got certified as a clinical medical assistant and I now work part time, as my health allows, at Children’s as an MA in the orthopedic department. My husband works at a hospital as well.

 

During my time in undergrad I created Miracle UNG, a non profit student run organization to benefit Children’s. We’ve raised over $100k since the start of the foundation and I’m still very much involved in an advisor role now as others have carried the torch since I graduated.

 These are not scientific treatments to treat the life threatening diseases I face.
