Holly Butcher was 27-years-old when she died on Thursday after she could no longer fight her Ewing’s sarcoma – a cancer in and around the bones.
She wrote of her struggle with accepting death at a young age:
"It’s a strange thing to realise and accept your mortality at 26 years young. It’s just one of those things you ignore. The days tick by and you just expect they will keep on coming; Until the unexpected happens. I always imagined myself growing old, wrinkled and grey- most likely caused by the beautiful family (lots of kiddies) I planned on building with the love of my life. I want that so bad it hurts."
She posted a final note on Facebook which you can read below. Rest in peace Holly.
