My Bad Blood
Melissa Kremer (24) was diagnosed with leukemia in 2015.
After uncertain years of trial and error, the leukemia returned in the spring of 2020.
Melissa documented her last year of life in detail and wanted to reach as many people as possible with her message.
She passed away on March 23, 2021.
In the months prior to her death, she contacted documentary maker Alwin Ritstier (see video) and wrote her book My bad blood.
'There's a taboo about dying when you're young.
Suddenly feelings like pain, sadness and fear are the main themes in your life.'
Melissa thought that those feelings also belong to it and should exist fully in the daylight.
In this way, she hoped to become a ray of hope for young people faced with their approaching end.
