D635: CAN DEATH BE A FABULOUS THING?
Without sounding morbid, death is a topic close to cancer community. It shouldn’t be taboo to talk about it. After all, no one gets out of here alive. Honouring Lisa’s way of being open to talk about the good, bad and ugly of cancer. Honestly, I have had ‘holy craps’ moments after diagnosis. Never have I faced death so closely (especially when I went into ICU, twice ). Having a conversation with a friend about shopping around for hospice as if it was picking the next airbnb was a surreal experience. Being asked about how I want my funeral to be is a real question faced by cancer patients.
Today, I farewell a sarcoma rock star warrior.
Dedicating this to Lisa Maggil from Terminally Fabulous who is now eternally fabulous. If someone can rock fabulous in heaven, Lisa is the one.
I carry those who have passed close to my heart, remembering my sarcoma warriors @Zane Collier, Kristian Antonellos, Michael Lyon, John Martin, Tory Marvin, Gavan and their families.
May their spirits rest in peace.
No more pain at last.
May strength be with those who are left behind.
Love and hugs,
