Demi said: ‘I’ve lost both of my parents, my dad cancer and my mum had a heart attack which caused a stroke when I was 17 and I was left as her carer as she was left disabled.
‘Then my dad passed away with cancer and then my mum then sadly passed away 7 months after him with a stomach infection, and it just made me grow up really fast and be really really strong about things.
‘And I think if I can inspire people by talking about grief, then you know if they can relate to me and they can understand it a little bit and I can help them then that’s important to me.
After experiencing the loss of both of her parents, Demi admitted: ‘I’ve gone through a lot, so I can talk on it.
‘I feel like nothing can really affect me now, nothing can really make me feel a certain way – I’ve gone through it all.’
Discussing how she copes with the loss of loved ones, she said: ‘It’s just part of life’s plan and you’ve got to be strong about it,’ adding: ‘I couldn’t have prayed for better friends.’
