A Devastating Day

Two days ago I received a call that I was just not expecting, Josephine (on the left of the photo) had passed away. Just less than a month ago we sat together for the panel discussions for Irelands first mBC Day. Josephine and I had spoken on the day about keeping our family informed of changes in our conditions. She spoke of having told her children that Mum would be joining the angels soon, but I certainly did not expect it to happen so soon.  It is a stark reminder of how quickly things can change and how your world can be turned upside down in a flash. I have a pain in my heart, yet another husband left without a wife, three young children no longer have their loving mother by their side. I held my kids so tight when I heard the news. I feel angry why are we not making more headway with this disease? Why are we still dying? I am so gladto have met you Josephine and you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
