I feel so honoured that Emily ever let us into her life in any capacity, and I can only hope that we (her viewers) provided some comfort to her. She came across as such a bright, confident, positive person in all her vlogs, and it's infuriating that she didn't get to live the long life with Aisha that they both deserved. My heart goes out to sweet Aisha, I can't imagine how difficult this is for her. Their love for each other was so incredibly beautiful to watch, I really hope she's okay and that she has lots of support around her right now. This is so heartbreaking :love1:

Aisha posted this on her instagram story today and I'm having a really hard time articulating my emotions but this really made me feel all kinds of things <3

This completely made me tear up.

I aspire to be anywhere near as strong as Aisha is in life. :love1:

Ah shit. My eyes are leaking. I admire both of them so much.

Aisha has made her instagram public: https://www.instagram.com/aishahasan92/

I'm guessing the number of requests she was getting got to be too much to handle. I know she'd accepted at least a couple thousand follow requests in the past few days. Who knows if this is permanent or temporary but I'm getting a lot of comfort from knowing I'll still have a way to see that she's doing okay.

(I feel like I should add that if she ends up going private again or just wants to disengage from Emily's fans at some point I would definitely respect and understand that as well. But right now it's just - comforting.)

The video was the last thing I expected to see tonight (it's nearly half past 11 pm where I am) and I'm speechless. I've personally had a hard time dealing with this because death isn't something I cope with well and I feel so overwhelmed with emotions after watching this. I mean, I suppose I do every time I watch one of Emily's videos but this one evoked so much emotion in me. There are about a million things I want to say, and my heart feels so heavy tonight, but all I can really properly say right now is that Aisha is truly incredible and I'm so glad to know that Emily wasn't in pain when she passed and that she was herself.

Now I'm crying all over again. It's amazing that Emily's funeral will be open to her fans--I expect hundreds will show up.

It was also lovely to have a full ten minutes of Aisha. She's beautiful and strong too--she and Emily truly deserved each other. :lilheart:

That was such a touching video. Youtube was never Aisha's thing, and she didn't have to make any video at all, but it was so nice to hear from her and see that she is doing okay. She is so incredibly strong, and it was so nice to hear her perspective on how important youtube was to Emily. The love they had for each other is such a beautiful and inspiring thing.

Aisha did a few instastories today too. I'm so glad she's got her family there with her.

I have never been 100% clear about this, but Aisha and Emily have been living with Aisha's parents, right? When Emily started vlogging two years ago, she and Aisha had their own place, but at some point that changed.

Yeah - I think it was a combination of work and hospital accessibility? I know Aisha's parents lived closer to the hospital, but if I also recall correctly the period last year where they didn't live together is because Aisha's job had her working further away from where Emily worked. Living apart didn't last too long though, you could tell they both hated it a lot.

Aisha had a lot of requests from people who wanted to donate in Emily's name to a charity. Here is a link she posted on her instagram story: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/emily-hayward-pt
The donations go to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. <3

I keep going back to watch that video. It's so reflective of everything she was, so vibrant and full of life. It's a beautiful tribute to her.

I also keep re-watching the video. I don't know how to put it into words, so I'll just second what dizzy said. Such a beautiful tribute. What a truly incredible person she was.

I thought I'd drop in here with a little update - Aisha doesn't vlog but she does do instagram stories almost every day, and today she posted this lovely life updated:
I'm just so proud of her and her strength.

I love that you dropped this in here. I was actually just checking up on her instagram last night after not checking in since emily passed away, and I had considered posting something here but I didn't know really what to say. I was getting pretty emotional reading some of the posts, but not necessarily in a bad way. I'm just really proud of her and happy for her that she's pushing through the tough times, and it's so inspiring to see her positive outlook on life and the ways that emily inspired her and still continues to be a part of her life.

I think the last couple weeks were rough for her. She went on a trip (with her family, I think) that she and Emily had planned. But she really does have such a positive attitude. Even when she's sharing how hard it is, she seems to really be grasping hard onto the idea of what Emily would want her to do and how Emily would want her to be strong and enjoy life. It's heart breaking and beautiful at the same time.

I agree. She seems to be focusing on living a life that Emily would be proud of (as she's reiterated this in many ig posts), and like you said it's heart breaking and beautiful at the same time. I think it really is the best thing for her, as Emily always preached living life to the fullest and appreciating each day, and you can tell Aisha is really trying to follow that mentality and do Emily proud, even when it's tough for her.

I missed that update from Aisha, she is such a positive person. I'm glad she is fighting through, I can't begin to imagine what she is going through but she is definitely an inspiration.
