Dame Anita Roddick died aged 64 on Monday after suffering "a serious brain haemorrhage". She is the founder of Bodyshop where she pioneered cruelty free beauty products. She was also a great campaigner for environmental and human rights issues. She was and still is an inspiration to my pawrents, for her entrepreneurship and great passion towards the environment, including animals.
The news of her death came at about the same time my Mummy realised that one of her friends got diagnosed with brain stem tumor. It is shocking because she is only about the same age as Mum (mid 20s). The doctors say that she has only about 5 yrs left to live. We are very very sad.
We know that everyone leaves this earth eventually but we just cannot imagine relating to the word death at such a young age.
Mum has encouraged her friend to remain positive, change her lifestyle and seek treatment. Miracles do happen and we will be praying for her.
Dear friends, do include Mum's friend in your prayers.
