Woman tragically announces her own death on LinkedIn

Woman tragically announces her own death on LinkedIn

The HR professional took to the site to announce her death

A British woman announced her own death on LinkedIn with a heartbreaking pre-written message.

Daniella Thackray, a HR professional from Leeds, said she was suffering from an aggressive form of bile duct cancer, known as cholangiocarcinoma.

Taking to LinkedIn, her family posted a final message on the 25-year-old's behalf.

"If you’re reading this then it means I have died from my battle with cancer and my family are posting my final message on my behalf," the message posted five days ago reads.

"Firstly, I just want to say that not all cancers are caused by lifestyle choices, in some cases it’s genetics or unfortunately it just happens.

Her family posted the message for her.

"In my case, despite me being very healthy and active, a cancer started in my bile ducts which was not caused by anything in my control and my life was never the same again," she continued.

"Cholangiocarinoma is a rare aggressive cancer with often no obvious causes and no cure.

"I really really do hope that in the years to come more research is done about this horrid cruel disease so that more lives can be saved.

"So with that being said, although we can’t control what happens to us, we can control how we react.

"I chose not to mourn the life I was losing despite being so devastated, but to instead enjoy every moment I had left.

"As I have always said and believed you should enjoy the little things in life and cherish every moment! Romanticise your life!"

Daniella urged her followers to 'do whatever makes you happy and don’t let anyone take the joy of life away from you'.

"I LOVED my life. Everything I had achieved was what I wanted," she added.

"I loved my job, my fiancé, my family, my friends and my dog, and the house we were going to buy and the future we were making for ourselves.

"Leo my fur baby was definitely brought into my life to help brighten my darkest days.

"So thank you everyone for making my life so magical. Remember what I said about enjoying the little things."

Her final message was for her partner Tom, which read: "And lastly to my dear, beautiful Tom, I love you and always will.

"Thank you for supporting me and bringing so much love and happiness into my life. Go enjoy your life now, you deserve it."

According to the National Cancer Institute, on average, cholangiocarcinoma affects fewer than six in 100,000 people around the world.
