Heather McManamy died of breast cancer, but she definitely did not lose her sense of humour as she leaves behind an inspirational, tender and funny message for her 4-year-old daughter, Brianna and her loved ones.
In the down-to-earth letter, McManamy talks about the situation in a direct fashion, stating that, "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."
"If you go to my funeral, please run up a bar tab that would make me proud. Heck, blast “Keg on My Coffin” and dance on the bar for me (because there had better be a dance party at some point)."
Despite drawing the short end of the stick, McManamy remained resolved, saying:
"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. It wasn’t a “battle” it was just life, which is often brutally random and unfair, and that’s simply how it goes sometimes. I didn’t lose, dammit. The way I lived for years with cancer is something I consider a pretty big victory. Please remember that."
