Our Lovely Eva

I have mentioned Eva before. She is a young Canadian woman who is suffering from the disease Cystic Fibrosis. Two years ago she received the gift of an lung transplant but within one year her body had rejected it.

I found her blog a few months after that [through Marni] and asked you all to say prayers and send cards to bolster Eva and you, my Tadpoles, came through.

Now several months later without the hope of a second transplant Eva feels it is no longer within her to fight. She is tired, barely breathing and doesn't have the strength to go on, but I have to say she is as giving, loving and beautiful as she has always been.

She posted a final video called "I Love You" with her parents - it is on her blog at 65 Red Roses. It is truly inspiring but very difficult to watch. Could you please take a moment to go let Eva know that she is loved? She is such a wonderful person and I can't help but think if there were more people in this world such as her that it would be a much, much better place to live.

Very touching video.

Thank you for sharing this with us.

We can only hope and pray that more people begin to have the same attitude towards like that Eva does. :) *hugs*
