We are often told that we need to live every day as if it was going to be our last and unfortunately, some of us learn this lesson in the most heartbreaking way possible. Nardya Miller was just 25 years old and starting to make her way in the world when she received the worst possible diagnosis during his battle with cystic fibrosis.
In 2014, doctors attempted to remedy her condition by conducting a double lung transplant, but her body rejected the new organs and her condition only began to worsen. Her health started to deteriorate in a rapid fashion and she was left with only a few more days to live.
While most of us would start to feel sorry for ourselves if we knew that our life was about to be cut short before we had a chance to grow old, Nardya decided to provide inspiration by taking to her Instagram account and speaking with her family and friends.
Her final updates are heartbreaking, as she spoke about the fact that she would never see any of the people that she loved ever again.
Even though Nardya fell ill, she refused to allow her condition to put a damper on her dreams, as she continued to build a relationship with her loving fiancee Liam and founded her own beauty business, entitled Immaculate Makeup and Beauty, which she continued to run until her failing health finally forced her to step away.
For his part, Liam has continued to urge people to spread the word about the importance of organ transplants like the one his fiancee received, as they provide many people with a much needed second chance at life. Liam and Nardya’s story did not have a happy ending, but the grace and dignity that they have displayed is something that needs to be shared with your friends on Facebook.
Maybe I've known you my whole life, maybe I've known you for 10 years, maybe I've known you for only a short while, but in just over a week I will never know you again, I will never see your face again, I will never talk to you, touch you, hold you, ever again. But I will always love you, and the friendships we built, and the memories we made. Every single person who has come and gone from my life has been and gone for a reason and I'm the most blessed person to have lived this incredible life that I have. So thank you to all of you who have been apart of my journey in this crazy world. Whether you made my moments good or bad, you made me into the women I am today. Things do not always turn out how you plan in life, there are some really huge things that I will never have, places I'll never go and things I'll never live to see. But I'll be watching. Always. Smiling. Because I was here. I will never give up. As I never have. Now I'm just simply letting go. Details of my funeral will be posted once everything has been organised. Please don't be sad for me. All I wish is to be remembered as the girl who brightened your day at least once. And please I beg you to live your life to absolute fullest. ? -N x
