As many of you will have seen, my beautiful mum lost her battle to oesophageal cancer on Sunday. She was a strong woman who had been through nearly everything life could throw at her and came out a warrior, but unfortunately, as with many other people in the world, cancer was the thing to end it.
I am heartbroken that my mother has gone but I hope she is in a better place, with my brother who also passed away, where they are no longer in pain.
It pains me to do this again, but I may as well be blunt: I do not have any money for a funeral. My mum didn't have any insurance or money for a funeral and so I don't know what else to do. I cannot get a state funded funeral because even though I am low income, I have to be receiving benefits which I don't.
My mum is all the way up north, in Lancashire and so I have to have her cremated in a small service there and then I will try and organise a memorial service in London so I can have friends and family there.
Anything you you can donate would be appreciated so much. I just don't know what else to do.
