This is very sad news.
I always felt that she was one of the "good guys".

Sad news indeed sad
Wonderful that her family have pledged to help others who are living through similar circumstances

How like her to think of others. I've always admired her, and never more than now.

The good news is that she is still alive four months after diagnosis.
Good for Tessa.
She's being positive.
