Many years ago, Heather and Steve Salazar adopted a friend of a friend's baby after that friend died of breast cancer at the age of 24. The Salazar's already had three children but they still welcomed this beautiful little girl into their family.
Then, a few years ago Heather was doing a self breast exam and noticed a lump. That's when doctors confirmed that she had the exact type of breast cancer that killed her friend. Thankfully, Heather was able to get treatment in time and is now in remission. Heather's amazing story of perseverance is inspiring so many people.
Heather is also the CEO of a nonprofit called "Pink Ribbon Girls" that helps provide meals and transportation to women around the country fighting breast cancer. What an amazing and strong woman! She has chosen to see the joy in even the hardest of circumstances! Way to go Heather!
