Addressing her readers with grace and candor, Daniella began by shedding light on the indiscriminate nature of cancer. She emphasized that not all cancers stem from lifestyle choices, highlighting her own battle with cholangiocarcinoma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer that defied explanation or cure. Despite being healthy and active, Daniella's life was forever altered by this cruel disease.

Yet, in the face of adversity, Daniella chose not to dwell on despair but to embrace every moment with unwavering positivity and joy. She encouraged others to cherish life's simple pleasures and find happiness amidst the challenges.

This is what she wrote:

"If you’re reading this then it means I have died from my battle with cancer and my family are posting my final message on my behalf.

Firstly, I just want to say that not all cancers are caused by lifestyle choices, in some cases it’s genetics or unfortunately it just happens. In my case, despite me being very healthy and active, a cancer started in my bile ducts which was not caused by anything in my control and my life was never the same again. Cholangiocarinoma is a rare aggressive cancer with often no obvious causes and no cure. I really really do hope that in the years to come more research is done about this horrid cruel disease so that more lives can be saved.

So with that being said, although we can’t control what happens to us, we can control how we react. I chose not to mourn the life I was losing despite being so devastated, but to instead enjoy every moment I had left.

As I have always said and believed you should enjoy the little things in life and cherish every moment! Romanticise your life! Do whatever makes you happy and don’t let anyone take the joy of life away from you x.

I LOVED my life. Everything I had achieved was what I wanted. I loved my job, my fiancé, my family, my friends and my dog, and the house we were going to buy and the future we were making for ourselves. Leo my fur baby was definitely brought into my life to help brighten my darkest days.

So thank you everyone for making my life so magical. Remember what I said about enjoying the little things.

'If ever there is a tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart… I'll always be with you.' Winnie the Pooh.!

And lastly to my dear, beautiful Tom, I love you and always will. Thank you for supporting me and bringing so much love and happiness into my life. Go enjoy your life now, you deserve it."
