Christopher Shuttleworth

This Saturday marks the 10 year anniversary of my brother Chris’ death.

Christopher died from cancer at Rachel House aged 13. He was an inspiration to me, he always had a positive outlook on life, and didn’t let his disabilities get in the way of him living to the fullest: he was one of those people who could brighten up the whole room with just a smile. 

Chris’ death had a profound effect on me throughout my teenage years, not only did I miss him everyday day, I felt a lot of pressure to achieve and make the most of my life because of how early he lost his. This caused me to mess up a lot of things and go down a dark, lonely road.

It’s crazy how time flies and how much we all take our lives for granted. I still think about Chris a lot and the memories that we had together, it’s good being able to look back with a smile and hopefully one day I’ll see him again. 

I love you.
