13 DIAMONDS – Life Before Death from a Child’s Perspective
By Manon Rinsma

There are everlasting loves that continue to exist after death do us part. I lost my always-loving mother when I was 12 years old to brain cancer. A battle we could not win. This is my voice, my story – from a child’s perspective.

13 DIAMONDS – Life Before Death From A Child’s Perspective is a story about family. It is about hope and all beautiful life has to offer, until the inevitable strikes and a brain tumor the size of a tennis ball made itself at home, intruding in the happy lives of a loving family. 13 Diamonds portrays the feelings and views of a young girl who witnessed her mother, the brightest, most beautiful woman she knew, slowly die – taken by this horrific form of cancer. It is about strength, life, death, beauty, grief, and most importantly, it is a story about love.
