Meet Heather

Meet Heather

Heather McManamy is a mother who was told back in 2013 that she had breast cancer. The cancer was already in stage 2, and there wasn't much time left for her to live. She eventually died.

Writing Letters

Writing Letters

Because Heather would no longer be alive for any longer, she began writing letters that gave advice to her baby daughter. In the letters, she identified the various significant events that she would miss by the time she was gone. It was sad, but also heartwarming.

Jeff Shared the Final Letter

Jeff Shared the Final Letter

Heather died this week. To commemorate her wonderful life, her husband Jeff decided to share her final letter to all of her relatives and her friends. Heather was so kind that she didn't want people to be sad, she wanted them to have a party to celebrate her life instead of having a funeral.

Surgery and Chemotherapy

Surgery and Chemotherapy

When Heather was diagnosed with breast cancer, she immediately had medical operations, but to no avail. She was starting to feel hopeless, so the ex-research specialist from the University of Wisconsin started writing letters.

For the Husband and the Daughter

For the Husband and the Daughter

Heather began thinking of what would happen to the lives of the people she would leave behind, especially her dear daughter Brianna and her loving husband for 13 years, Jeff.

Various Milestones

Various Milestones

Heather imagined every possible event and gave Brianna some personal advice, from the moment she'll get her driver's license to the moment she gets married and when she also has her own family to love and protect.

Unable to Hand Out Personally

Unable to Hand Out Personally

Sadly, Heather passed away, so she wasn't able to give the letters personally. Thankfully, Jeff was there to share the lovely letters.

Not Religious

Not Religious

Heather reminded people that while other people are religious, Heather and her family is not. It would be better if people didn't tell Brianna that Heather was in heaven, because it would be against the belief (or lack thereof) of Heather and it would be an illusion to Brianna instead of giving the daughter a sense of comfort. She was asking for respect, the same way she respects religious people.

She Is Not in Heaven

She Is Not in Heaven

Heather wanted people to tell Brianna that she wasn't in heaven, and that Heather tried everything she could to say with her family because there is no place else she'd rather be. She wants Brianna to be reminded of how Heather was a nice, caring and awesome mother.
