Holly Butcher died of bone cancer earlier this year. The young Australian wrote a letter shortly before her death, telling posterity what she considered important as a terminally ill. The family of 27-year-old published the emotional message last week (3.1.) With the deceased’s Facebook account. Since then, the post has been shared over 82,000 times.
Holly writes that it is strange to be aware of one’s own mortality at the young age of 26. “It’s something you like to ignore. One day at a time, believing that things will continue until the unexpected happens. I always imagined getting old, wrinkled and gray. ”
“So life is. It is fragile, precious and unpredictable and every day is a gift, not a given right. I am now 27 years old. I do not want to leave yet. I love my life. I’m happy … I owe that to my beloved. But I have no power over it », continues the 27-year-old.
