A true friend celebrates with you through the good times, but also stands and fights by your side through the tough times! Heather Bird is the epitome of a "true friend" to many people! Heather has a heart of pure gold, and is notorious for going out of her way to help anyone in need, or anyone going through a tough time! This page was put together by a group of people, including myself, who consider Heather to be a true friend! We (Heathers friends) have been watching Heather try to fight this disease by herself, without wanting to burden anyone else with her problems! Even though Heather is trying to Tackle this on her own, we decided we were not going to let her do that, and so we created this page!
I first met Heather a little over a year ago, when one of our mutual friends had a serious medical emergency that almost killed him! Heather devoted hrs of her time working selflessly to help in any way possible! She helped raise thousands of dollars for our good friend, and she worked for many days, meticulously planning out a benefit dinner for Him (just one of many examples of Heather going out of her way for somebody else)! Heather also frequently donates her time to charities, including St. Jude's and charities that helps raise money for autistic children!
Heather has had several battles with cancer in the past, she is a very strong-willed and independent woman, and has managed to pull through each and every time. I've even heard stories of Heather fighting and winning boxing contest while undergoing extensive chemotherapy, just to show she wouldn't be beaten!
A few months ago Heather was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, and because of the soverity of the disease, is now taking both chemotherapy and radiation at the same time ! Despite all the negative side effects and the toll that the chemo and radiation are having on her body, Heather refuses to slow down or ask for help. Heather is a very strong and proud woman, she is a warrior in the truest sense of the word, she is one of the strongest people I have ever met! I watched Heather go through both radiation and chemo on the very same day, loose all of her hair, come home with the skin peeling off of her chest from the radiation , and pull twelve hr shifts the next two days in a row while taking brakes just to throw up from the nausea!
￼The ironic thing about Heather is that even though she will go out of her way to help anyone in need, she doesn't ask, or want anything from anyone. Heather doesn't want anyone to carry any of her burdens, but I've got news for her...........Heather Bird you're a beautiful, and extremely strong (hard-headed) person, and you never once asked for help, but you're not in this alone, you're a good and loyal friend to many people, and we are going to walk this out with you!
Heather is a lot of things to a lot of people. First and foremost, Heather is a dedicated and loving single mother of two beautiful children. Heather's two children are by far the top priority in her life! Heather is a loyal and faithful friend to many people, and will do anything for you when she considers you a friend! Heather is a dedicated and hard-working employee, she takes a lot of pride in everything she does including her job, and she always gives 100%! Heather Bird is a Beautiful person inside and out, but don't let that beauty fool you, she is also a warrior and a battle tested fighter, but with that being said sometimes we all get weary from life's battles, and battles are not won by individual fighters, but by the combined efforts of the many fighters that form an army! JOIN OUR ARMY, STAND UP AND FIGHT SIDE BY SIDE WITH HEATHER BIRD AND HER BEAUTIFUL FAMILY, and let's win this battle together!
With Cancer, it is very important to keep a positive and not get overwhelmed, yet This can be extremely difficult, especially when you are trying to bear all the weight by yourself!
