This is the last picture Rachael Bland posted on Twitter. It shows her (right) giggling with Radio 5 Live co-hosts and fellow cancer patients Lauren Mahon (centre) and Deborah James (left).


Bland wrote an emotional goodbye message to her social media followers on Monday.




Her husband Steve told the BBC: 'Rachael's death has left a huge hole in our perfect little family that we'll never be able to fill.

'She was an incredibly talented broadcaster as well as a wonderful and much-loved daughter, sister, aunt, niece, wife and, most importantly to her, a mother to her precious little Freddie.

'We all take such huge comfort and pride from the amazing and tireless work she has done since her diagnosis to reduce the stigma around cancer and prove that it is possible to live life to the fullest even when facing huge challenges on a daily basis.

'At the end, even though her body was at its weakest, her voice was at its strongest and most powerful.

'Rachael was and will always be an incredible inspiration to everyone she met. To us, she was perfect in every way and we will miss her more than words can say.

'We just ask that everyone respects our family's privacy as we try and come to terms with losing our beautiful girl.'

One of the greatest privilege someone can get is to know his last day on earth...
While the wise will use it well, settle with God and forgive those offend u ask for forgiveness for those u offend.. Reconcile with God and accept him with your whole heart.

Congratulations for you give ur life to Christ and as for you over there, it's never too late for you.. Give your life to Christ, he loves you, he's the only way.

Goodbye Madam..
