At the young age of 12 Athena Orchards was diagnosed with bone cancer
and she had to undergo chemotherapy treatment. Unfortunately, despite her suffering through the treatment she lost the battle against cancer and died in May 2014.
After her death her parents looked behind her mirror and found a very inspirational and uplifting message from their late daughter. Apparently, she managed to find positivity despite her fatal illness.
Here are some of the quotes.
“Happiness depends upon ourselves.
Maybe it’s not about the happy ending, maybe it’s about the story.
The purpose of life is a life of purpose.
The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. Happiness is a direction not a destination.
You have heard what I’ve done, but not what I’ve been through.
Every day is special, so make the most of it. You could get a life-ending illness tomorrow so make the most of every day.
Life is only bad if you make it bad.
Remember that life is full of ups and downs, without the downs the ups don’t mean anything.
I’m waiting to fall in love with someone I can open my heart to.
Life is a game for everyone but love is the only prize.”
