Heidi Marble

It has been 12 since Heidi was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Her original prognosis was 18 months - a death sentence. At 34 years old, mother of a two year old son and wife of a devoted husband, Heidi fought with unflinching determination. The sacrifices were many: loss of both breasts, a full hysterectomy, burns from radiation, hair loss from chemotherapy, coupled with years of hormonal injections/pills. After a few miracles, Heidi crawled back with a heart full of purpose. Her metamorphosis from near death to life is documented in her book, WAITING FOR WINGS, which chronicles Marble’s journey through diagnosis, treatment, survival and healing. It includes poetry she has written as well as personal journal entries, illustrations and photographs. Her second book TAKING FLIGHT explores life after cancer. Additionally, her team has created a unique form of art called the DONATE & CREATE PROJECT. Thousands of pieces of unwanted jewelry, button, buckles, watches and bling have been donated to create life size art pieces. The art is used for auction, display and community projects to raise money for research. Apparel patterned from the art is now available in the form of shirts, men's ties and silk scarves. As Heidi states, "Healing is a gritty, messy and exhausting series of ups and downs, what matters is that we find our own way."
