About Us

Heidi was born and continues to live
in the mountains of the Carolinas
where ‘mountain people’
are often referred to as ‘survivors.’ 
Little did she know that she would comprehend
the word ‘survivor’ to the depths that she does. 
In 2004, Heidi embraced the ‘pink ribbon’
as her badge of courage and honor;
it is her legacy of survival from a battle
with the beast known as breast cancer.
  Heidi's cancer journey,
along with her sister’s untimely death,
has inspired her to participate
and volunteer in breast cancer events,
speak at breast cancer awareness conferences,
and return to school.
