Episode 16: Overcoming Cancer with Heather Moret

Did you know that almost half of all men and a third of all women in the United States will receive a cancer diagnosis at some time in their lives? Many times receiving a cancer diagnosis often comes with little or no warning at all.

In today’s episode, I chat with cancer survivor, Heather Moret to discuss her cancer battle with a rare and aggressive lymphoma. She shares how she handles the diagnosis, how it impacted herself as those around her, and the mindset shifts she needed during her battle.

Heather Moret is married to her graduate school sweetheart, Stephen, and together they have four children, ages 16 to 7. She studied journalism in college before pursuing graduate degrees in public administration and developmental psychology.

In October of 2020, Heather was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive lymphoma. After 8 rounds of intense chemotherapy, she was declared in full remission in April 2021.

She feels that real learning has occurred while caring for the many needs of her twice-exceptional children. In October of 2020, Heather was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive lymphoma. After 8 rounds of intense chemotherapy, she was declared in full remission in April 2021. She gives thanks to her heavenly father, her family, and friends for walking so closely with her through this difficult time. And now that she’s in recovery, Heather is back to baking and loves walking with friends and her husband. She is also obsessed with historic real estate and all forms of chocolate.

Listen in as we discuss:

  • Heather shares the journey of receiving her diagnosis, as well as her treatments at MD Anderson.
  • Cancer is a battle of the mind and the body
  • The importance of showing our struggles to others so they can see how to support us best.
  • Heather offers advice to others who may be in their own cancer battle.
