This Letter From Beyond The Grave Will Remind You To Love Every Day.

Heather McManamy was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago, and died this year. Before she did, she wrote a letter to her daughter.

  1. 1

    " Yes, this sucks. It sucks beyond words, but I’m just so damn glad I lived a life so full of love, joy and amazing friends."

  2. 2

    "I am not in heaven. I’m here. But no longer in the crappy body that turned against me. My energy, my love, my laughter, those incredible memories, it’s all here with you. "

  3. 3

    "Please tell Brianna stories, so she knows how much I love her and how proud of her I will always be (and make me sound waaay cooler than I am)"

  4. 4

    "And don’t say I lost to cancer. Because cancer may have taken almost everything from me, but it never took my love or my hope or my joy."

  5. 5

    "It absolutely breaks my heart to have to say goodbye. If it’s half as sad for you as it is for me, it breaks my heart over again because the last thing I ever want to do is make you sad."

  6. 6

    "I hope that with time, you can think of me and smile and laugh, because, holy shit did we have a breathtaking life."

  7. 7

    "Thank you to all of my amazing doctors and nurses who have taken such incredible care of me. I don’t doubt that my team gave me every possible good day that they could."

  8. 8

    "From the bottom of my heart, I wish all my friends long, healthy lives and I hope you can experience the same appreciation for the gift of each day that I did."

  9. 9

    " Don’t ever forget: every day matters."

  10. 10
