A Woman’s Twitter Feed Tells the Story of Her Battle with Brain Cancer
I normally don’t do these kinds of videos and posts because they are heartbreaking. This video features the Twitter feed of a woman named Amanda living life, going on vacation and doing other mundane things when, one day, she gets a call from the doctor and the unthinkable happens: she learns she has advanced glioblastoma multiforme, or a cancerous tumor in her brain, and has three months to live.
Isn’t it strange what social media has done in our lives? We leave — after we die — a narration of our daily lives. Our great grandchildren might pull up our Twitter profiles and see the bad days we had, read about the joys of a vacation or maybe see the slow spiral into death.
Make sure to watch the video until its conclusion. Deep stuff.
