On my birthday in 2019, I held my Mam’s hand as we received the news no family wants to hear. We had a fabulous Macmillan nurse with us to help explain things as we were naturally overcome with emotions and not processing things straight away.
At Christmas I held her hand again as we received the worst news, she only had weeks left with us. To fulfill her wish I managed to get her home from hospital so she could be surrounded by love and have an ever lasting Christmas (she LOVED Christmas)
This was the scariest journey I have ever been on. I felt the weight of the world on my shoulders and wanted to make sure she had the very best care possible.
Thanks to Tanya our Macmillan nurse, some fabulous community nurses and carers we ensured she was as comfortable and pain free as possible and managed to get some precious time with Mam.
Today (14/8) on Mam’s birthday, Will (“Grans treasure) and I will be doing a series of fundraising events, over the next year, in Mams memory and to hopefully help other families when they need it the most.
Join us, in what ever way you can, we hope to raise money and smiles in Mams memory. Xxx
