FRI NIGHT VID: Climbing again after Cancer

In November 2017, Hyeri Heath was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 27. The cancer spread throughout her left breast and she underwent a mastectomy. She is currently receiving Herceptin and hormone therapy. Hyeri and her husband Dan have documented each stage of her illness, from diagnosis to her current recovery process. They've just released a video of Hyeri climbing for the first time since her operation in late December.

Judging by Hyeri's smile and dance moves, we think she's very happy to be back! Keep up the good work!

'I want to raise awareness of cancer in young women.'
