guys, please read. it’d mean a lot to me.
This is Claire Frick, a girl that I went to school with. I didn’t know much about her, but I knew she was sick, she was sick with cancer. She had it in her brain. I also knew she loved to sing. She was in the school’s top choir, Cantus Certus, which is one of the best choirs in the nation. I was in the lower choir, and everyday I would walk past her and she would be waiting to go into class. She always sat in a chair by the wall, blankly staring at the floor. She looked sad. I wanted to come up to her and give her hug. She looked miserable, but I thought it’d be awkward since I didn’t know her. But as the year went on, Claire seemed pretty happy. I saw her in the hallways smiling, she wasn’t in a wheelchair anymore, she seemed healthy. 1st tri ended at my school, and I didn’t see her anymore. I was told by many she was too sick to be in school. Last week was our all choir proformance, and Claire wasn’t able to preform because she was too sick. My teacher told us to sing for Claire, because she’d kill to be on this stage. She had never missed a single concert preformance in her whole high school career. Singing was something she was great at. It made her happy, so I did that for Claire. Claire came to the concert but she was too weak to talk. She had no control over her face, she was pale, and she looked miserable. After my concert, my teacher told us Claire was going to pass any day now, and that she wanted Cantus to sing at her funeral.
Today in class, they announced Claire died this morning at 3am. I’m in shock, even if I didn’t know her. She was apart of my school, my friends knew her, my mom knew her. Her benefit dinner was on Sunday. But, it’s cancelled now, because cancer killed her. I always never reblogged anything that had to do with cancer, because I had no idea how it effected people, and now all I have to say is, fuck cancer. It took a beautiful girl’s life, along with many others who have suffered from cancers of all types. I can’t imagine the pain Claire went through, and along with the people who also suffered too from this deadly disease.
Rest In Peace, Claire Frick. You’re in a better place. ♥
