Woman writes her own emotional obituary days before passing away

Bailey broke up the obit into five parts: a section for her friends, for Brent, her parents, aunts, and social workers.

She began: ‘To my parents, thank you for supporting me and my decisions throughout my life. I always remember my mum saying losing a child would be the hardest loss a parent could go through.

‘My parents gave me the greatest gift of supporting my decisions with not going through chemo and just letting me live the rest of my life the way I believed it should be.’

The next bit was for her friends.

She wrote: ‘Being an only child, I’ve always cherished my friendships more than anything because I’ve never had siblings of my own.

‘I never thought I could love my friends more than I did but going through this and having your unconditional love and support you have made something that is normally so hard, more bearable and peaceful.’

Bailey then wrote: ‘To my Brent, you came into my life just three months before my diagnosis. You had no idea what you were getting yourself into when you swiped right that day.

‘I couldn’t have asked for a better man to be by my side for all the adventures, appointments, laughs, cries and breakdowns.’

Next, Bailey thanked her aunts, her palliative care team, and all her doctors and nurses.

She also urged people to send donations to charities Melanie’s Way or Young Adults Cancer Canada.

Bailey passed away on 5 April. But she left everyone with one last little message: ‘Don’t take the small stuff so seriously and live a little.’
