Remembering Theda

Light a Red Candle for Theda

“A life that touches others goes on forever….”

25 January 2014 marks the 6 month anniversary of the passing of Theda Myint, a vibrant and caring Australian woman who lost her lengthy battle with Lyme disease.

Theda, whose dream it was to be “the next Oprah Winfrey”, was passionate about helping other sufferers of invisible illnesses, such as Lyme disease, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Her passing is mourned not only by her loving family, devoted partner and many friends, but also all those she touched through her activism, determination, and messages of hope.

We invite you to join us in remembering Theda on 25 January, by lighting a candle (preferably red, her favourite colour) in honour of all of who have lost their lives to invisible illness, and the loved ones left behind.

What you can do to remember Theda

Please upload a photo of your candle and or yourself to this event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/210384739166129/) to show your support.

Theda’s legacy will be one worthy of her life; we are currently planning the launch of International Red Shoe Day, to take place each year on 25th July, the anniversary of her passing. Supporters will be asked to wear red shoes – another of Theda’s passions – and raise money for resources to help people in the immediate weeks after the passing of a loved one due to an invisible illness. More on this in the coming weeks.
