If You Had Months to Live...

Last week my local news did a follow up story on the family of a woman named Amy Taylor.  Her life was cut all too short at the age of 34 due to breast cancer.  She left behind a husband and two small children.
What's so different and special about Amy that she made the local news?  It was her attitude and what she left behind for her children that made an impression on many.  
When Amy was told that her breast cancer was un-treatable, she chose not to dwell on dying, but to live and to continue "living" for her children even after her death.
Please watch the video below.  I'm warning you though, you WILL need tissues! 
I will be 34 at the end of this month.  I can not imagine leaving my children behind, not being there for all of their "firsts".  This amazing woman found a way to be at her children's "firsts" despite not physically being there.

What if you knew you had less than a year to live?  What would you leave for your children?  How would you spend those last months?

For those that are wondering, here is the follow up story from last week: (bring on the tissues again)
P.S.  Did you know, For every new Like on the Twin Cities Chevy Girls page, $1 will be contributed to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer initiative?  See our post about it here.
