Love is something

Eva Markvoort

Eva Markvoort inspired an international following through her online diary about her lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis — finally succumbing to death on March 27th.

Her website, called “65 Red Roses,” inspired an award-winning documentary of the same name.

On March 25, Markvoort wrote her last post. “I am not managing, not managing at all. I’m drowning in the medications. I can’t breathe. Every hour. Once an hour. I can’t breathe. Something has to change.”

In her dying moments, Eva summoned what little strength she had to record this little song for all the friends and loved ones she was leaving behind.
