Jodie: Never forget to 'Live Life Large!'
FOUNDER of charity Jodie's Inspiration, Jodie McRae, is still in high spirits despite news last week that she may only have days left to live.
Following her 'final goodbye' to the public, and the subsequent outpouring of love and appreciation for the Lismore woman who founded a charity after beginning a breast cancer battle herself, Jodie has expressed her gratitude to those who have sent her messages over the last few days.
This message was posted on the Jodie's Inspiration Facebook page, along with this Snapchat-filtered photo with her daughter, over this weekend.
"Hey everyone! Jodie and Kaela here!" the message read.
"Thought I should let you all know that I'm still here and having as much fun as we can!
"While at times I don't feel the best, we are making the most of every day and spending it with the people who matter most.
"If you've got to say goodbye to the people that you love, what better way to do it than to do it on our terms and in true 'live life large' style.
"Obviously my life is a lot more then the last 3 and a half years and I never imagined how good life could be despite the circumstances.
"Knowing that you've touched so many people is beyond anything I can explain.
"Going forward over the next few weeks I know it won't be the easiest for anyone but we are taking each day as it comes and at the moment I'm feeling great, so trust me... I ain't going nowhere!!!
"Obviously we have had to change priorities over the last week and have put our Pink Halloween organisation on hold.
"We have been back at it again today and trust me, while I might not be able to enjoy it this year myself, I know each and every one of you will!
"And if there is one thing I could ask for it would be that everyone gets themselves a ticket and that you come and party and join in the celebration of not only my legacy...
"But help celebrate everything that you as a community have helped us to create!
"Feel free to like and share my story because the way I see it, the more people we can reach, the more people we can help!
"And never forget to 'Live Life Large!' Jodie ❤️ xoxo."
