It’s a nightmarish scenario that makes you thankful for every day you are alive. Within a week of returning home from an adventurous holiday in Whistler, British Columbia, Rebecca Ware unexpectedly died of leukemia. The camera her boyfriend lost during that trip suddenly gained a much greater significance, as its memory card contains many of the last images of Rebecca and boyfriend Matt Lorraway before she died.
