Video: Moving story of dying woman’s final months told through her tweets

Metro

This poignant video captures the final months of a woman dying from brain cancer, as told through her Twitter account.

Shannon McKarney, a digital consultant from Toronto, explains she decided to make the online tribute after coming across Amanda’s Twitter (TrappedAtMyDesk) account.

‘I never met Amanda. I didn’t even follow her until it was too late,’ she wrote on a blog post entitled Everything We Leave Behind.

‘I debated whether to make this video, and debated more whether to post it. It’s not my story to tell, and I don’t know if Amanda would have wanted it told this way.

‘But ultimately, I’ve chosen to publish it as a tribute to her, and a reminder to all of us: sometime, we will leave it behind.’
