Thank you for the reply
The reason I have reached out to you is because of the nature of your blog. I love that you have a blog about motherhood! I myself am a mother to a quirky little 6 year old, Lily. She is my only child, and my whole world (I’m sure you know the feeling!)
The very beginning of Lily’s life was a little more turbulent than I would have hoped for. When Lily was just 31/2 months old, I was diagnosed with Mesothelioma; a type of cancer that kills 90-95% of those who have it. As I’m sure you can imagine, the first thing that came to mind when I was diagnosed was my baby girl and how I wasn’t going to be able to watch her grow up.
After all that, I’m still here 6 years later and cancer free! I'd like to turn my pain into purpose and become someone that other parents can look to for guidance, inspiration, and hope in situations like my own. I contacted you because I feel that your website would be an excellent place for me to share my story. Your visitors are the exact type of people I'm trying to reach out to; these are all the types of people who could gain something from my story.

Would you consider putting link to my blog on your site as a resource for your readers? Or, if there are other ideas you have about ways we could work together, I’d love to hear them! I hope you are interested. :)

If you'd like, check out my blog: http://www.mesothelioma.com/blog/authors/heather/
It details the struggles I went through as a new mom diagnosed with cancer.

Thanks so much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Best,
Heather

Hi Heather:

I thank you for your kind words but as you can see from this post, I stopped writing this blog over a year ago. I wish you all the best and congrats on being cancer-free. I cannot imagine how hard that was for you but I'm very happy you survived. All the best to you and your family.
