WHY was Heiress founded?
The co-founders, Laura and Mary Willis wanted to use their passion for theatre to make an impact in the battle against cancer.
From CO-FOUNDER Laura Faith ~
In January of 2002 my mother died after a nine month battle with stage IV melanoma. Almost four years to the day, my younger sister was diagnosed with stage III melanoma. After undergoing complicated surgeries, she is, astonishingly, now cancer free.
Saying the words 'my mom died from cancer' or ‘my 22 year old sister is a cancer survivor' seem small in comparison to the reality of living with cancer in my family. Creating Heiress Productions, Inc. is my reaction - a way to use passions, to heal and to have a positive influence - on the battle against cancer.
From CO-FOUNDER Mary Willis White ~
Advanced technology and the capability of physicians saved my parents' lives.
There's so much story - so much life - behind every cancer diagnosis, treatment program and survivor. The stories of my mother and father have left me forever changed. Part of healing for me is to use my personal skills and passions to make a difference for cancer awareness and research through Heiress Productions, Inc.
