Bride Leaves Heartbreaking Message From Beyond the Grave After She Died of Cancer | 22 Words

A bride has left a tragic message from beyond the grave for her family and loved ones after she passed away from cancer.

This is utterly heartbreaking...

It's a tragic reality that around 9.6 million people died from cancer last year...

And every sixth death in the world is due to cancer, making it the second leading cause of death.

This is a very personal topic to many...

As nearly everyone knows or has lost someone dear to them from this collection of diseases.

Cancer is a cruel illness...

And the chance of a person - no matter how old they are - losing their life is scarily high.

It's truly devastating...

And millions of people are left mourning the loss of their loved ones every year thanks to this terrible disease.

How on Earth do people deal with this kind of loss?

It's not even worth thinking about.

A man from the U.K. recently lost his wife to cancer...

But he and her family were stunned to find a message she left from beyond the grave.

Ricky Moore, who is from Leeds, U.K. has been in a relationship with Gemma for sixteen-years now...

And they have become a strong part of each other's lives.

They both share a passion for bodybuilding...

Making them the perfect match.

But 2 years ago...

Tragedy struck.

Gemma was diagnosed with cancer in April 2018.

She underwent weeks of grueling radiotherapy alongside a year of aftercare.

Even though she went into remission...

The disease returned a year later and this time around, there wasn't much the doctors could do for the thirty-nine-year-old.

She was admitted into a hospice 2 months ago to spend her final weeks...

And just 4 days after being admitted, Gemma and Ricky finally tied the knot in an official but quiet ceremony.

The couple have spent every second together in the last few weeks...

And on Wednesday of this week, Gemma died peacefully in her husband's arms - just 4 days after they celebrated their "2 month anniversary."

Ricky took to Facebook to announce the loss of his wife.

You have been forever by my side since we met on 30/8/2004! Sixteen years together my loved one. And I will carry on loving you till the day I die," he wrote. "A massive part of me is now broken that can never be repaired but I have made you a promise, which is that I am going to live every single minute of the rest of my life making you f****** proud!! And I know you're going to be watching over my every move to make sure that I keep my promise!"

Gemma's family and friends have been left completely broken by this terrible loss...

But little did they know that Gemma had organized for a special message to be posted on social media for her grieving loved ones.

This message was posted on all of Gemma's social media accounts last night:

"If this is being posted it means I’ve finally died after weeks of clinging on far too long. Although I’ll be heartbroken to leave behind all my loved ones I’ll be so glad to get away from what this b****** disease has left me as," Gemma had written in a pre-planned post.

She spoke of her hope to make a difference to future cancer sufferers...

"I really hope that by sharing my cancer story and petitioning for secondary cancers scans to be made mandatory I’ve made a positive impact, and even if only 1 person gets some help from this then I will feel like I have accomplished something good," she said. "I really can’t thank Rick enough who has been by side all the way and given me an amazing amount of love and support throughout this horrific time."

She wants her loved ones to take comfort in the fact that she is no longer in pain.

"I am also grateful for all the support I have received from all of my followers on social media. If anyone is going to take anything from this, it is that life is short and that we all think these sort of things will never happen to us."

She wants her family and friends to not take their lives for granted...

"Well I thought that, and let me tell you now, this could happen to anyone of you reading this. So live your life to the fullest, don't take anything or anyone for granted because none of us really know what is around the corner."

Gemma's post from beyond the grave received more than 7,000 likes and responses...

And people came together to remember the wonderful person Gemma was and to send their messages of condolence to Ricky and her family.

Rest in Peace, Gemma.

Our deepest condolences go out to her family and loved ones during this difficult time.
