Fashion Instagrammer becomes Mom-cologist when her 3 year old son is diagnosed with leukemia. Heather, 34, is unexpectedly switching hats (of which she wears many) – literally and figuratively – and, “it’s been quite the journey.” Since her son’s diagnosis in April 2018, she is his nurse, his play pal, and his mama. Being quarantined most of the time is the new normal, and while she treasures their family-time, she also knows she must carve out time for herself. And, even in the scariest of times, it is fashion that gives her the creative beat in her life that she needs and loves.
“Standing in my curves is just about strength. Last year, our son was in treatment for leukemia, and there were days when I didn’t want to get out of bed…but we got up, we got dressed and we made all 60 procedures. For me, it was about standing up and facing the day. I feel my strongest as a woman, and a mom, when I feel comfortable in, and am loving, my outfit. Something as fun as fashion can make you feel better,” shared Heather!
“There really is power when women come together, and I think we are seeing that as a movement right now. I think it’s really inspiring to see women supporting women and seeing our diversity and uniqueness as a collective strength.”
