Selected excerpts from My Terminal Life
Amy Lyn Schnitzler: Bright spirit, beloved daughter, sister, partner, niece, cousin, aunt, godmother—and friend to so many, passed away peacefully December 21, 2019, surrounded by love. She was born July 13, 1989 in Rochester, NY, attended Rush Henrietta schools, and graduated from Nazareth College in 2011. Her interests and talents were many, but her abiding love was music.
A gifted writer, Amy blogged about her journey through life with MBC, weaving both humor and vulnerability into what would later become her book: My Terminal Life: Cancer Habitation and Other Life Adventures. Amy hoped that her story would make a difference in the lives of others living with MBC, show the face of cancer beyond the usual “pink” awareness fluff, and that the sale of her book would help fund what’s needed most: research for a cure.
Whether you are a patient or a family member, a medical professional or clinician, an educator or student, please let us join together in this fight and help beat MBC.
All proceeds from the sale of her book will benefit METAvivor and the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester (BCCR).
