A couple of months ago, my beautiful cousin Montana asked if she could use my battle with Cancer as her subject matter for a school assignment. Montana (aka ‘Moni’) is fifteen years old and in year nine. She had to complete a biography and a video presentation.
Moni has always been the kindest and most warm spirited girl. A smile always planted on her beautiful face and open arms to embrace big hugs whenever we are reunited (Moni lives in Bendigo – where I was born).
When Moni asked to write about me… I admired and was grateful for the fact she said I was an inspiration to her in relation to getting through my breast cancer – bless her.
The questions were respectful and well thought out (she’s a very mature cookie this one). It was quite confronting re-visiting those dark days to recall information, however, quite therapeutic from a progression point of view. It was refreshing to see that my life has taken leaps and bounds since that dark time.
I thought I would share Moni’s work with you. It brought many, many tears to my eyes and I’m so lucky to have such beautiful family, near or far – always in my heart. I love you Moni x
Here it is – she’s been working very hard on this for weeks. So proud of you Moni. [The volume dips slightly at the end so you will need to turn it up a bit]:
