"Let Me Be Your Star" lyrics.
I admire sooo much the interpretes of this great musical...
|Oh by the way, did you know Eva Markvoort? (Pic.)|
Eva's online identity is based on Canadian cystic fibrosis community lore that '65 roses' is a malapropism among children with the disease for 'cystic fibrosis'. Eva added 'red' because it was her favourite colour.
Despite early success following her double lung transplant in 2007, Markvoort died on March 27, 2010 at Vancouver General Hospital after a long battle with transplant rejection, while awaiting a second lung transplant. Shortly before her death, the 25-year-old theatre student received her degree from the University of Victoria at her hospital bedside.
On March 25, Markvoort wrote the last post on her blog:
Markvoort had recorded an emotional farewell video on February 11, saying she likely had only days to live. These last spoken words to her web community drew more than 150,000 views in less than 24 hours. In addition to her degree, she also received the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Doug Summerhayes award for outstanding commitment to the cause. She was also a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal.
On April 30, 2010, Markvoort's family held a memorial service that was attended and watched by thousands of people, around the world. The celebration was streamed live to Eva's blog for her followers who could not attend in person. A version has been edited by Justin Cousineau and posted on Eva's blog, which continues to be updated by her family."
A Marilyn on medication, who loved life and knew how to live... and loved people and "the world at large"...
For Eva (is she singing that one?...)
This is for you, Eva... I can't sing to save my life, but I'm pretty sure if you can hear... this, well you're gonna laugh... We miss YOU, Miss Marilyn...
