It is with great sadness to announce that our mum, Wendy, passed away on Thursday 18th October.
Unfortunately, we did not get chance to make the memories that we were so desperately hoping to make before she passed. Therefore, we feel that this money should now be used to support our youngest siblings and also to give her the funeral that she deserves, as our final goodbye to a strong, inspirational and amazing mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunty and friend. She was one of the strongest people that i know.
My mum fought a very difficult battle after being diagnosed with cancer (Stage 4 Glioblastoma) only 2 weeks ago and was told that she had 3 months left with her family. Unfortunately, our time was suddenly cut very short.
The reason that I originally set this gofundme page up was so that me, my 3 brothers and 2 sisters were able to make memories with mum that we would be able to happily reminisce about in the future- we had arranged to do some of the things that she wanted to do but we didn't get the chance.
Another reason that this page was set up is so that the money raised would also ensure that we were able to provide some financial support to my youngest brother and sister- Lee (17 years old) & Zoe (14 years old). They both lived with my mum and were dependent on her, this also means that they now have to move out of their home so donations would mean that they will be financially supported and will have one less thing to worry about in what is a truly difficult and devastating time for us all. It will also help to provide a bit of re-assurance to Lee & Zoe that they are going to be OK.
Your donations would be greatly appreciated by the entire family or even sharing this gofundme page as much as you can to help raise awareness would be a great help.
