Welcome to Heather's GoFundMe page set up and run by her band of friends
With this page and our fundraisers we hope to raise both money and an awareness of Heather's new journey. Here is that very journey in Heather's own words......
"As most of you are aware I got the “Big C”........Diagnosed with Colon Cancer and the doctors gave me the worst diagnosis ever but we won’t repeat those words as they are only words and I will defy them. That is why the girls started to call me “Malahide’s Miracle” A self-fulfilling prophecy. I will be a Miracle!
I had emergency surgery on my colon and left with an ileostomy bag. I’m managing that well but with a diagnosis like this, one person can’t do it on their own and my instant reaction was to tell everyone. I am blown away by the love, support, presents, prayers, thoughts, kindness to me and my family.
It has made me reflect on this community we call Malahide, we are so fortunate to grow up here. Not only is it aesthetically beautiful but we are surrounded by beautiful people, that I’d like to say if anyone is suffering alone there is HELP out there. This is a wonderful community and people are eager to help. So thank you to everyone so far.
As you may have noticed “I CERTAINLY LIVED” for the past few years. Following my soul, changing jobs and leading by the heart to live a FULL LIFE. I’d like to say thank you to all the communities I now have in my life. My wonderful yoga community both in Dublin and the girls I met in Bali have been incredible, my acting community who have been fantastic, my Nutricia gang nourishing me and Malahide Community School and Trinity College. My most recent position before my diagnosis is January was enrolled in Trinity College studying to be a secondary school Biology teacher. It is a 2 years Masters that I still hope to complete. So thank you to the many people that I have crossed paths with in life that have reached out to me. It means a lot"
