World News – UA – My open letter in my last days


Cancer victim from Perth, who has only a few days to live, wrote a poignant open letter to her young self, urging her to prioritize the important things in life

7NEWS reports that lawyer and athlete Ruth Hunt was first diagnosed with stage three breast cancer at the age of 34

Despite chemotherapy and remission, the cancer returned and she was diagnosed with stage 4 end-stage breast cancer at the age of 37

She joined the Australian Army in 2016 and has since participated in countless sporting events

A talented swimmer and rower, Ms. Hunt won five gold medals at the United States Air Force Warrior Games Trials in Las Vegas, despite having completed her chemotherapy a fortnight earlier

She also participated in the Invictus Games in Sydney in 2018, in the presence of the founder, Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex

In the heartbreaking letter, Captain Hunt wrote how she would learn ‘life lessons’ from her first diagnosis

« Dear me, you don’t know it yet, but you are going to have a few difficult years in the future – much sooner than you expected, » she writes

« Don’t worry – as difficult as it gets, it turns out you’re a lot tougher than you think and will have a lot more support than you might imagine

Captain Hunt then explained how she would one day meet Prince Harry at the Invictus Games and become a lawyer and army officer, travel the world and meet her husband, Lt. Col. Andy Love

But, she shared how her devastating diagnosis would hamper the life she loved

« Cancer sucks The first time is not the end of the world The second time is a harder pill to swallow but, again, it is not the end of the real world, » writes -she

She lists six life lessons she learned in her 37 years and things she wished she had known when she was younger

They include taking every opportunity to travel, knowing that one day she couldn’t and spending time with her family

« Cancer will teach you that family is everything They’ll be the ones sitting next to you in the chemo ward, flying through Australia just to be with you, sending you care packages and flowers. They will not be co-workers, ”she wrote

She also encourages her young self to ask for more help, to stress less and spend sick time when she needs it and to enjoy her time with her dog.

« Cancer will teach you that many people have taken advantage of your generosity and kindness for a long time The sooner you learn to say no, the better, » she writes

Perth, Letter, Ruth Hunt, Baroness Hunt of Bethnal Green
