I have just turned 40, but my sister Lindsay will never reach this milestone.
When she was 25 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. When she was 31 she died from the cancer which had spread to her liver.
Lindsay was a strong, funny, loyal, witty, brave, beautiful woman and I miss her and remember her everyday. But I promised her I would live my life to the full, and I do. I am very lucky.
