A woman announced the news of her own death on her social networks. Casey McIntyre, 38, of New York, sadly passed away from a relapse of stage four ovarian cancer. And she wrote a final goodbye to the people dearest to her by announcing her own death, writes LadBible.

In a post on her Instagram account, Casey wrote: “Note to my friends: If you are reading this then I am dead. I’m very sorry, it’s terrible and we all know it.”
“The cause is a recurrence of my previously diagnosed stage four ovarian cancer. I loved each of you with all my heart and I promise I knew how deeply I was loved. The five months in home hospice that I spent with my family and friends in Virginia, Rhode Island and New York were magical.”
Her farewell message ends there, but her husband Andrew has added more below. In the editor’s note for the post, he says that Casey “intended to end this post with a list of things that have been a comfort and joy to her throughout her life,” and he’s heartbroken that she’ll never be able to see the list completed.
A cause in memory of Casey
“I guess it would have involved our daughter Grace, whales, ice cream, her favorite friends. To be at the beach, her niece and nephews, whom she loved irreparably. 10 books on a week’s vacation, her beloved parents and sister. Swimming, a perfect roast beef sandwich and me, her sweet, sweet honey,” Andrew wrote.
Andrew added that he is asking those who knew Casey to share a memory of her for his comfort and joy. And many did just that, with comments on Casey’s post announcing her own death filled with fond memories people had of her.
Casey’s husband then announced something about his wife’s memorial service. He asked those wishing to remember Casey to anonymously help people with medical debt. His other request was that everyone attending her memorial service “wear something that expresses our deep sorrow for our loss. As well as something that expresses the joy you feel to have ever known Casey.’
According to CNBC, about 100 million US adults have medical debt. About 12% of people owe more than $12,000. Thanks to Casey’s memorial service, some people will get help from an anonymous benefactor. Rest in peace Casey!
