This site is dedicated to the memory of Sarah McBrien.

Sarah was diagnosed in early 2008. Her battle with the disease ended on the 12th February 2009, just three days after her 30th birthday. Whilst her passing has left a huge void in our lives, especially that of her twin sister Fiona, the family has taken great solace through the celebration of Sarah’s life. She crammed so much into her time that most will not achieve this given double her years. Sarah was an incredibly gifted young woman who possessed great humility and empathy that was no doubt encouraged by her wide traveling and enthusiasm for immersing herself in every culture she encountered. She could be unassuming but at the same time all who made her acquaintance could not fail to be moved by knowing her. Her smile lit up rooms, she possessed such great love for life and her enthusiasm was inspiring. Sarah devoted her time, following diagnosis, to raising awareness and fighting for a cure for this disease. The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation was very close to Sarah’s heart and she would be very proud that through tribute to her you are contributing to the continued fight against this disease. Sarah's favourite quote: Quote from the Life of Pi by Yann Martel:“My Life is like a memento Mori painting from European art: there is always a grinning skull at my side to remind me of the folly of human ambition. I mock this skull. I look at it and I say, “You’ve got the wrong fellow. You may not believe in life, but I don’t believe in death. Move on!” The skull snickers and moves ever closer, but that doesn’t surprise me. The reason death sticks so closely to life isn’t biological necessity –it’s envy. Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and the gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud."
