  1. Of all people your passing hurt the most. I saw your plea for help and I was so moved by it– surely someone would step up and extend a helping hand– I am devastated. Your suffering touched me and I know there are people now who suffer like you did. People, please don’t give up, keep reaching out, especially to a local Bible church; churches need to learn to love and care for the sick. I will never forget you Heather.

  2. Rest in peace sweet Heather. We will continue to fight this disease and the medical ignorance in your honour. Fly with the angels.

  3. Heather, may you have peace as this horrible disease is to blame for your untimely passing.

    We must find a way to aid one another in our dark hours. No matter the reason whether it be our symptoms, the poverty this disease induces, or just wanting to end our suffering.

  4. rest in peace heather! i just read about your suicide tonight.”
