Memories to last a lifetime

£3,900 of £4,000 goal

Raised by 144 people in 36 months
In March my sister Samantha Chapman (28) was diagnosed with cancer in various different places. She has undergone Chemo and Radiotherapy, spending lots of time in hospital. Sadly we were given the devastating and truly heartbreaking news that the cancer has spread and there is unfortunately nothing more that can be done to help Sam. We have been given an awful time frame of between 9-18 short months left with us.
Sam and her husband Colin have three beautiful babies of 4,5 and 6.
We have set this page up to raise funds in the hope that when Sam is well enough they can enjoy days out and make lasting memories for the children and Colin.
If this exceeds our dreams then anything left will be placed into trust for the children.
Thank you for taking the time to read our plight and heartfelt thanks if you have managed to donate.
Your kind wishes and thoughts mean as much if not more than any funds you can spare.
Lots of love Tanya and all of the family xx

Good morning everyone.
Just an update to say that Colin, Bryan, Leland and Delisha's hotel, travel and park tickets have all been booked.
Given the circumstances you have all enabled them to have the best Christmas possible.
To think that we started this off with a target of £500 and the aim to go to Butlins is incredible.
Thank you so much to everyone the dream to even think about getting to Disneyland Paris is a reality for them all.
With lots of love from Colin, Bryan, Leland, Delisha, Mandy, Tanya, Shaun, Hazel, Sam, Richard, John and sammies's nieces and nephews. Words really aren't enough xx

Thank you to everyone involved in donating to this fund.
As you are most probably aware we held Sammie's celebration of life yesterday. What a turn out that was. So thank you to everyone that came.
We have now booked a trip to Disneyland Paris for Colin, Bryan, Leland and Delisha. They will be going over Christmas and will be joined by 12 other family members. Thanks to you all we will try and give Sammie's children the best Christmas we possibly can.
Donations are still coming in and anything left over from Colin and the children's trip to Disney will be going into trust funds for the children. So any donations are still very much appreciated.
I've never known an out pouring of love like it.
Thank you all so much xx
