This tribute fund has been set up in loving memory of a wonderful wife, mum, gran, sister, auntie and friend. My mum was diagnosed with cervical cancer in the summer of 2016 and after gruelling treatment and a brave fight she was given the all clear a year later. Shortly afterwards she developed late effects of her radiotherapy treatment and faced another life threatening battle which saw her in and out of hospital for months until she sadly passed away in February 2018 just weeks before her 60th birthday. She showed strength, dignity and bravery throughout her entire fight, taking everything as it came and still thinking of everyone before herself. We couldn't be more proud of her and there are absolutely no words to explain how much we love her and how dearly missed she is by us all. My mum was so proud of the money we managed to raise as a family in an attempt to say thank you to the Beatson for the care and compassion they showed her during her treatment. We plan to continue raising as much money as possible in her name and hope that this money can allow the Beatson to continue to provide a high level of care to their patients as well as develop crucial aftercare clinics that could help save the lives of many.
