My sister passed away in December of 2015 from a rare aggressive strain of breast cancer. She was diagnosed and passed away in less than a year's time. It was an extreme roller coaster and the hardest thing I've ever dealt with. She was definitely my best friend and it was very difficult to see her go through this and lose her in the end. Now over a year later, I am picking up the pieces. Some days are totally normal and other weeks end up tear filled and anxiety ridden. When those bad times happen, I know its important to ride the waves of emotion all the way through and know it gets better. She was such a bright light in my life that I know she definitely would not want me to sit around and be depressed I hold on to that and try to live my life to the fullest way. I think she would continue to be proud of me, as she was always my biggest fan.
