On Borrowed Time

In the summer of 1999, Henrik Malmstrom's older sister Maija was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, only 20 years old. Her prognosis was not good. With the help of different treatments and a strong will she was able to extend, and periodically enjoy, her life.
In November 2007 Maija was hospitalised again. This is when Henrik started to document her and the rest of my family in hospitals and at home. The following months were to be her last, for she passed away at home in April 2008.
