Woman, Bailey, Who Wrote Her Own Obituary Before Dying Of Cancer Will Remind You To LIVE

When 35-year-old Bailey Jean Matheson found out she had two years to live, she decided to make the most out the time she had left. She wanted others to do the same.

”35 years may not seem long, but damn it was good!” So begins the now-viral obituary of Bailey Matheson who died on April 5th. The woman’s upbeat tone, young age, poignant life advice and warm messages to her loved ones are garnering lots of attention worldwide.

“Don’t take the small stuff so seriously and live a little,” Matheson urges others in her final send-off, where she acknowledged all the people she loved most throughout her life and her diagnosis.

She thanked her parents for giving her “the greatest gift” by supporting her decision to refuse chemotherapy, because she wanted to live her life the way she wanted to live her life in the end.

“I always remember my mom saying losing a child would be the hardest loss a parent could go through. My parents gave me the greatest gift of supporting my decisions with not going through chemo and just letting me live the rest of my life the way I believed it should be.

I know how hard that must have been watching me stop treatment and letting nature take its course. I love you both even more for this.”

Matheson, of Canada, also wrote of being an only child, and thanked her friends for being the siblings she never had.
