Verily

a little while back Verily Magazine asked me to write for them about why I started this blog. I’m so excited to share my piece –

There is so little out there for the children of parents with terminal cancer, and I would love to help change that for people facing similar situations. It can feel – and did feel – hopeless and pretty awful.

Using my blog and Instagram to chronicle the little bits of life that were still ok truly lifted me, and my mum took great solace in it as well. It helped remind her, too, of the small happinesses in our strange new life, and reassured her that we would be ok in a world without her.

Her ‘Instagram like’ was always my favourite, and I will forever miss her witty comments, often posted while I was in the room next door 😄 Carpe diem!!! #verilymoment
