Before passing away from cancer on Thursday, a young Australian woman penned a touching letter about the realities of life.
Holly Butcher, 27, lost her battle with Ewing sarcoma on January 4, a rare form of cancer that mostly affects children and young people.
After accepting the fact she had months to live, Holly penned the letter to encourage others to live in the moment and value other people’s time.
She asked her family to post the letter on her Facebook account once she was gone.
Holly said: “I’m watching my body waste away right before my eyes with nothing I can do about it and all I wish for now is that I could have just one more birthday or Christmas with my family, or just one more day with my partner and dog. Just one more.”
“Your new fake nails might have got a chip, your boobs are too small or you have cellulite on your arse and your belly is wobbling.
“Let all that s*** go. I swear you will not be thinking of those things when it is your turn to go.”
