Twin Shares Heartbreaking Images of 19-Year-Old Sister She Lost to Leukemia
There’s no denying that losing a sibling can be a very difficult thing. But when that sibling is your twin and only 19 years old, it’s difficult to imagine anything more painful for their other half.
That’s the heart-rending story of Sabrina and her twin sister, Elizabeth Caitlin Puckett. On Aug. 2, Caitlin passed away after a five and one-half year battle with leukemia. Having difficulty expressing her feelings, Sabrina took to Imgur where she shared a touching story of her and her sister’s life together “A Photo of You for Every Year You Got to Live,” Sabrina titled it.
The post quickly went viral, surprising Sabrina.
“Holy s**t, the response this has gotten has floored not only me, but our entire family,” wrote Sabrina. “Caitlin would have found this hilarious, I bet. Thank you all so much for your overwhelming support and well wishes. I mostly made this to get some emotions out of my system, as I really don’t like crying, even in front of my family. And it turned out to be therapeutic for everyone involved.”
Sabrina goes on to say that a GoFundMe page has been set up in Caitlin’s honor, where in lieu of flowers the family is asking for donations to Lana’s Love, which supports “families of cancer patients by providing meals to families staying in the hospital, and hosting activities for children and adults at no cost. They give cancer kids and their families an opportunity to have fun and enjoy life,” the GoFundMe page states.
