Marisa Ford kisses her daughter Rebecca Zammit Lupi, a 15-year-old cancer patient, as she lies in a coma in her room, photographed by her father, Reuters photographer, Darrin Zammit Lupi, in Rainbow Ward at Sir Anthony Mamo Oncology Centre in Mater Dei Hospital, during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Tal-Qroqq, Malta, December 30, 2020. I took the first photo of my daughter, Rebecca, moments after she was born on August 3, 2005. Barely more than 15 years later, I took the last photo of my daughter moments after she died, of cancer, on January 3, 2021. I'm a photojournalist. It was only natural that I documented just about every moment of the beautiful life of Becs, as my wife, Marisa, and I called her. Harder, much harder, was documenting her illness and death from a rare and extremely aggressive form of bone cancer. After months of treatment she slipped into a deep coma and never regained consciousness, yet we carried on talking to her. I read to her lots, finished the Harry Potter book I'd be reading to her and started the next in the series, held her hand. They say that hearing is the last thing to go, so it was paramount to keep having her listen to our voices. Becs passed away, very peacefully, with no signs of distress at all, on Sunday morning, January 3, 2021, at 9:20. Mars, as I call my wife, and I were both with her.
