Friday - - REAL LIFE -

“If I had to pick one thing in life I’m most grate­ful for, it would be Gemma. We do ev­ery­thing to­gether and she is al­ways there for me.

With other friends, I put on a brave face, but with Gemma, I don’t have to. She knows I strug­gle with what is hap­pen­ing to Mum and she is so brave her­self, she is strong enough for the both of us.

Fam­ily means so much to me. No one else will ever re­ally un­der­stand what it’s like. We visit Mum and it’s hard, but Gemma makes jokes and light­ens the mood. With­out her I wouldn’t have the strength to visit. She is my sis­ter and my best friend.”
