Louise is a 42-year-old charity worker from Edinburgh. When she was told that her bone cancer had returned and was no longer treatable, she started writing an online blog to share her story with others. She hopes that if even one person can draw support, comfort or strength from it then some good will have come of her illness.

Her inspirational blog is now being followed by people all over the world. 

"It’s funny this word “terminal” as it makes me think of airports. Yet now terminal has a whole new meaning for me. And in a way, whichever definition you go with, I guess it’s the same in the end. You’re going somewhere new and different."

Louise Page died on Sunday 19 May 2013 surrounded by her loving family. This was three days after Lou had attended the launch of this exhibition.
