Her heartbreaking words are well worth remembering...
A moving letter written by a cancer victim who passed away at just 27 has quickly gone viral after it was shared on Facebook.
Holly Butcher lost her battle with Ewing sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, on 4 January.
Before her death, Holly decided to pen an open letter about life for her family to share on her behalf – and her poignant words have since been shared over 80,000 times.
'It's a strange thing to realise and accept your mortality at 26 years young,' she began. 'It's just one of those things you ignore. The days tick by and you just expect they will keep on coming; until the unexpected happens.'
She continued: 'That's the thing about life; it is fragile, precious and unpredictable and each day is a gift, not a given right.
'I'm 27 now. I don't want to go. I love my life. I am happy.. I owe that to my loved ones. But the control is out of my hands.'
Explaining why she decided to write her letter, Holly continued: 'I just want people to stop worrying so much about the small, meaningless stresses in life and try to remember that we all have the same fate after it all, so do what you can to make your time feel worthy and great, minus the bulls**t.'
Holly then went on to urge her readers to stop stressing about the small things in life, and be more grateful.
'You might have got caught in bad traffic today, or had a bad sleep because your beautiful babies kept you awake, or your hairdresser cut your hair too short. Your new fake nails might have got a chip, your boobs are too small, or you have cellulite on your ar*e and your belly is wobbling,' she wrote.
'Let all that sh*t go.. I swear you will not be thinking of those things when it is your turn to go. It is all SO insignificant when you look at life as a whole.'
She continued: 'I'm watching my body waste away right before my eyes with nothing I can do about it and all I wish for now is that I could have just one more birthday or Christmas with my family, or just one more day with my partner and dog. Just one more.'
After urging people to look after their physical and mental health as much as possible, Holly continued by listing her biggest life advice.
As well as telling us all to 'whinge less', she asked people to 'give, give, give' and show your loved ones you really care through small but meaningful gestures.
Other poignant tips in her letter include using money on experiences rather than material possessions, valuing other people's time as much as your own, and living in the moment instead of trying to capture everything on camera for social media.
Her final point is an entreaty to donate blood, if you can. 'It will make you feel good with the added bonus of saving lives,' she said.
'Blood donation (more bags than I could keep up with counting) helped keep me alive for an extra year – a year I will be forever grateful that I got to spend it here on Earth with my family, friends and dog. A year I had some of the greatest times of my life.'
Wise words all round, as we're sure you'll agree.
