I remember waiting excitedly for my nan to arrive at our house back in 2016 as she and my grandad had planned a trip to come and see us. (since we moved away from home in Liverpool to Essex we didn't get to see them often).
Before they even left I received a phone call from my dad (who had gone to get her) that she had a really bad 'stomach ache' and wouldn't be able to make it today, it was upsetting but I shrugged it off and said to myself "It's fine, i'll see her in a few days when she feels a little better and can make the trip"
Just over a month later, she had passed.
She was fine, we all thought she was fine, she had no other symptoms leading up to being diagnosed but within in a month she was diagnosed, given weeks to live, put in palliative care and became a shadow of the wonderful and just pure woman she was.
I'm doing this for you nan, and for all the future nan's, parents or children so that we can find a cure by supporting amazing charitable organisations such as this one.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and for helping me raise this money.
