Heidi's Heroes Mission is to Share Empowering Information Through Uplifting Blog Articles and Cutting Edge Cancer Research. It's also important to raise money to fund the research, targeted therapies and patient services. Heidi volunteers for and supports the American Cancer Society - Making Strides Against Breast Cancer on the national level and other local groups and organizations in the San Jose Bay Area of California.
The purpose of Heidi’s Heroes website and social portals, including, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, is to provide emotional support and hope to those affected by breast cancer, whether you are a patient, a survivor or a family member who's loved one is dealing with this ugly disease, we are here for you.
This website offers Heidi the ability to personally reach and inspire more people than she could from speaking one-on-one with men and women battling cancer and offering support to their family members. If you have never personally battled cancer you just can’t fully understand what it feels like. Heidi, herself, has survived multiple cancers and she shares heart-warming stories about her Heroes, those who have made a difference as a result of their battle with cancer. She offers hope by sharing cutting-edge research in the detection and treatment of breast cancer and other forms of cancer.
The name Heidi's Heroes originated as the name of her Making Strides Against Breast Cancer team with the tag line, 'some angels have wings, mine have sneakers'. The name took on a whole new meaning when she encountered numerous inspirational women who shared their cancer experiences with Heidi. As each one faced the most challenging time of their lives they did so with grace and an unbeatable spirit that has inspired Heidi to do what she's now doing to support, inspire and educate others as they embark on their own cancer experience.
