Young woman writes her own obituary: Life was good

The canadian woman Bailey Jean Matheson took the matter into their own hands, when she was diagnosed with incurable cancer.

She wrote her own obituary a month before she died. It writes the People.

The brave woman would like to tell his friends and family, that she had lived a very good life.

In 2017 she was told by doctors that she had not more than twelve months left to live. Even though she was advised to have chemotherapy to prolong life, decided Bailey, that she would not have the treatment, so she could live life in the best way in the time she had left.

Dødsannoncen she wrote to the Chronicle Herald that came out a few days after the death.

'35 year might not work as a long life, but it was damned hard well', she wrote, before she thanked her parents for supporting her decisions in life.

'I will always remember that my mother said that losing a child would be the greatest loss one could experience as a parent. My parents gave me the greatest gift, and supported my decision to decline me chemo and just let me live the rest of my life. I know it must have been hard to see me stop the treatment and let nature take its song. I love you for this', she wrote.

Because she was an only child she explained in the ad that she really appreciated his friendship and thanked all those who were by her side through the disease.

'I never thought that I could love my friends more, but having gone through this with their love and support has done something that usually is hard and terrible to be bearable and peaceful'.

She turned also to her boyfriend Brent Andrews, who had been there for her. She had met her boyfriend just three months before she received her diagnosis.

'You had no idea what you walked into when we got together. I could not have wished for a better man to have by my side. You are a great person and all, who have you in their life, is very lucky to know you. I love you more than words can describe'.

the Cancer called 'leiomyosarcoma' can hit in several stages. Although the people who get the disease in the first stage we have good chances to survive, it is an aggressive form of cancer, which in the third stage does not give much hope to survive.

Before Bailey completed his obituary she wrote that she wanted people to take the small things in life less seriously and remember to live while you can.
