The HR professional had pre-written the message for her family to post on her behalf after dying of cholangiocarcinoma.

In the message, Daniella paid tribute to her family, fiancé Tom, and dog Leo.

She also encouraged her network to “enjoy the little things” in life and “cherish every moment”.

She wrote: “If you’re reading this then it means I have died from my battle with cancer and my family are posting my final message on my behalf.

“Firstly, I just want to say that not all cancers are caused by lifestyle choices, in some cases it’s genetics or unfortunately it just happens. 

“In my case, despite me being very healthy and active, a cancer started in my bile ducts which was not caused by anything in my control and my life was never the same again.

“Cholangiocarinoma is a rare aggressive cancer with often no obvious causes and no cure’.. I really really do hope that in the years to come more research is done about this horrid cruel disease so that more lives can be saved.”

Do whatever makes you happy and don’t let anyone take the joy of life away from you

The digital marketing admin posted the heartfelt message with a black and white photograph of her walking her dog along the beach.

The young professional had been battling cancer for more than seven months.

The 25-year-old shared her health battle online posting pictures of herself in the hospital ward.

She revealed how she had a liver resection and gall bladder surgery.

In one post, Daniella said she was taking time to “rest, recover and learn how to walk again” while asking for TV and film recommendations.


However, despite her horrible diagnosis, she choose “not to mourn life”.

Daniella added: “So with that being said, although we can’t control what happens to us, we can control how we react. I chose not to mourn the life I was losing despite being so devastated, but to instead enjoy every moment I had left.

“As I have always said and believed, you should enjoy the little things in life and cherish every moment! Romanticise your life! Do whatever makes you happy and don’t let anyone take the joy of life away from you. 

“I LOVED my life. Everything I had achieved was what I wanted. I loved my job, my fiancé, my family, my friends and my dog, and the house we were going to buy and the future we were making for ourselves.

Leo my fur baby was definitely brought into my life to help brighten my darkest days.

“And lastly to my dear, beautiful Tom, I love you and always will. Thank you for supporting me and bringing so much love and happiness into my life. Go enjoy your life now, you deserve it.”

Her message has already gained more than 30,000 likes on LinkedIn.

Hundreds of heartbroken users rushed to share their condolences for her family. 

One said: “I’m literally in tears. Having been diagnosed with Stage 1A breast cancer in August, then surgery (lumpectomy) followed by radiation, this message from her hits home.”

Another added: “Wow. Such courageous words from someone that I’ve never met, but taught me a lot.”

A third penned: “You are an amazing lady, what a wonderful message to leave us with, may you rest in paradise.”
