About a 13-year old girl

I am very sad today. A 13-year old girl who has been battling an aggressive form of cancer for the past 6-7 years has died. Her name is Talia Castellano.

If you guys haven’t heard of this girl, search the Internet, especially youtube. You just have to meet her.

I was hoping she’d make it, but all of us have a short stint in this life, and Talia’s was much shorter than most people’s. She has made the most of her short stay despite her health issues. I can say for certain that she has inspired a lot of people. She has certainly inspired me.

My type 2 D is nothing compared to her cancer, chemo treatments and constant struggle to be healthy. She was upbeat, positive and happy. She may only have been a young girl, but she certainly taught middle-aged me how to live.
