16 days from her first symptom & 9 days after her diagnosis, a husband and 3 beautiful kids are now without a wife and mum.
Over the past few weeks whilst everyone was joyfully planning their Christmas rituals, supermum and superwife Liz, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma in her lungs, breast, spine and kidney. Quickly spreading further to her bones, lymphatic system & brain, Liz, with husband AJ by her side, started treatment on Monday in the hope of a miracle.
In the most tragic and utterly heartbreaking of events, Liz was rushed to hospital on Wednesday with what felt like a migraine. The melanoma on her brain had bled and she passed away shortly after.
Liz was only 39 years of age, leaving behind her husband AJ and 3 beautiful children; Sienna 7 and twins Fletcher & Scarlett 5. Liz was taken from them a week before Christmas and 3 months before her darling twins have their first day of prep.
Words can't describe the impact of the loss of such an incredible woman. Grief isn’t a strong enough word for what we feel, but we grieve for the loss of a daughter, a wife, a mum and a friend and for those 3 little kids who will now have their mum only in their memories, hearts and when they see the stars in the sky.
Liz didn’t even get a chance to fight this so we are asking our friends to help AJ and the kids fight everything that comes next. To navigate their way through this tremendously difficult time without the financial stress. Allowing AJ, Sienna, Fletcher and Scarlett to focus on their grief and healing as a family.
With reluctant agreeance, AJ has allowed his friends to ask for your support. To support and give our friend and his 3 cheeky kids the breathing space to care for each other after the most unfair and heartbreaking of events. All monies raised will go directly to AJ as he supports his family through the harrowing next chapter.
We will wrap our arms around AJ and the kids ensuring Liz’s warmth, energy and personality shines through Sienna, Fletch and Scarlett. We love you Liz and you will be forever in our hearts.
