Marnie Schulenburg- last Instagram post

One of the pictures shows the actress wearing an oxygen mask while reading a book with her little daughter.
The actress emotionally captioned:
“Here’s to remembering that nothing is permanent. To soaking up the imperfections and that the best thing you can do for your child is make them feel loved, safe and supported just like my mother did for me. Screw the oxygen mask, just remember how to breathe.”
She further stated:
”I want to give Coda the same, but I must be kind to myself and remember that nothing is permanent.”
The Good Fight actress took to Instagram in May 2020 to share her diagnosis of breast cancer.
In her post, just before her 36th birthday, she wrote:
“I contemplate, ‘How does one celebrate a birthday after a Stage Four Breast Cancer Diagnosis in the middle of a global pandemic while raising a 5-month-old?”
“What kind of sick purveyor of my fate gave me the gift to bring life into this world only to try and take mine in it’s place?”
“Zack and I vacillate between utter devastation and fierce determination. The narrative of the life we signed on for the day we married will never be the same.”
”Now we must adjust, stay present and (expletive) fight. #cancersucks.”
