Cenessa Stork – a beautiful soul
It is with sadness in our hearts that we bring you the news that Cenessa Stork – who shared her story of her battle with cancer with us in October 2012 – passed away this past week.
In her interview, Cenessa said: “every day that I can get up and out of bed is a very good day. I am determined to have as many good days as I can until there are no more left. If I can make a difference in just one person’s life today, I know that my job is done.”
What powerful words from a very strong, brave and beautiful woman. Cenessa, you reminded us that we should make every day count. That we ought be grateful for all that we have, and that we need to focus on that which really matters; and stop to smell the roses from time to time. Your friends can attest to the fact that you did have many good days, despite the pain you lived with. And your legacy is that you HAVE made a difference in many people’s lives – no one who read your story came away unmoved.
You lived your life with enthusiasm and optimism, and you left this world with fortitude and dignity. You will be missed by many hundreds of people who knew you, as well as many who simply knew of you. We will continue to be inspired by your life and how you coped with adversity. Rest in peace, lovely lady!
