Didi Coertze (18) was diagnosed with an extremely rare and aggressive bone cancer and had to have her foot amputated. The cancer has spread to her lungs, but hasn’t broken her spirit. It is with sadness that I have to say Didi didnt make it on the 14th of April 2012 she took her last breath. She was a inspiration to all on how to celebrate life and will be greatly missed.
