A young violinist, with cancer, reaches out to give hope

Carlotta Nobile, who died yesterday aged 24, opened a facebook page (her friends tell us) called Il Cancro e Poi (Cancer, and then….).

On it, without ever revealing her identity, Carlotte gave hope to thousands of fellow-sufferers with stories and stanzas of verse.

If you know anyone in Italy who is battling the disease, please share the link.

    There is an English-language page on her Website as well. As a survivor, I can say that I don’t think I’ve heard a more perfect way to summarize what the ‘journey’ is like as the way she does in her video. Such a loss!
