YouTuber 'Life With Lissie' is the second YouTuber to undertake the 'Living With Cancer' tag. As part of this video tag, social media influencers are asked to donate to the Irish Cancer Soc and tag others to do the same.
'Life With Lissie', real name Lisa Turner, spoke about losing her mother to the disease.
"The hardest part is that your loved one starts off as strong as healthy and they become weak and sick and its hard to see".
"I am thankful for the wonderful times I had with her".
Her advice for anyone going through cancer, their friends and family is to "be strong".
"I think of hope and positivity because I think that will help the person... they need positive thoughts to get them through".
