Die Waliserin Rachael Bland hat tapfer gekämpft und dann doch verloren. Seit 2016 litt sie unter Brustkrebs. Im April 2018 erreichte ihre Krankheit das Endstadium. Seither gab es keine Hoffnung auf Heilung mehr. Die verkündete vor wenigen Tagen die niederschmetternde Mitteilung ihrer Ärzte öffentlich: "Ich habe nur noch wenige Tage zu leben", schrieb sie Montag.
Am Mittwochmorgen starb die BBC-Moderatorin, wie ihr Mann Steve auf Twitter mitteilte.
Our beautiful, courageous Rachael died peacefully this morning surrounded by her close family. We are crushed but she would want me to thank everyone who took an interest in her story or sent messages of support. You’ll never know how much they meant to her.

A beautiful day with my boys in beautiful Salcombe. When the sun shines there is NO WHERE BETTER. We played on boats and in the sea. And I walked up steps and hills. When a week ago I needed to sit down x4 between the hospital car park and ward. Breathing that sea air as much as I can and taking the good day (despite the 5am wake up call - cheers Fred and daylight ????) #salcombe #cancer #stage4problems #devon #holiday #seaside #playingonboats #sunshine #breatheagain #mummylove #familytime #love #notdeadyet
"Ich fürchte, dass meine Zeit gekommen ist"
In the words of the legendary Frank S - I’m afraid the time has come my friends. And suddenly. I’m told I’ve only got days. It’s very surreal. Thank you so very very much for all your support I’ve received along the way. @bowelbabe and @girlvscancer will continue with the podcast. Obviously I cant get round to all of your messages but I’ll do my very best to read them all. #cancer #fucancer #goodbye
