This week on Mamavation TV, we will again be talking about dangerous toxins that may be in your home. We will cover how to stay safe, even during home renovations. This topic would not be complete without discussing asbestos, a known carcinogen. Mesothelioma is the aggressive form of cancer caused by inhalation and exposure to asbestos affecting the lungs. We are lucky enough to have a survivor of Mesothelioma as our guest this week.

Our Guest This Week
Heather Von St. James is a rare mesothelioma cancer survivor of 8 years. In 2005, at the age of 36, just 3 1/2 short months after giving birth to her daughter Lily, she was diagnosed with malignant pleural mesothelioma. After a life saving surgery at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, she has made it her mission as a cancer survivor to help other mesothelioma victims around the globe. She blogs with her husband Cameron for the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance where they share their experience for others going through a tough cancer diagnosis. They hope you will take a moment to educate yourself about mesothelioma and how you can help be a voice for the victims.
