Now it is up to karen and their amazing family to carry on the making Making memories and securing the future for their children before karen leaves us, no one knows how long this will be but Karen is adament to ensure that her children are left with the best memories and a secure future just. Please continue to donate and support this fund for the children. 

Just a brief story about Karen and Ed. Karen was diagnosed at 18 with a childhood cancer, unfortunately it has come back for the 3rd time, she has since been told that it is now incurable. Karens main carer is her husband Ed.  Devastatingly  he is now fighting the disease himself. They have been through so much and more.  UPDATE, Sadly Ed lost his fight for life today just before 3pm, our thoughts and prayers are with Karen and their families tonight

They have 3 children Keeva, Finn and Erin all under the age of 10.

The aim of the fund is help raise some money so Karen and Ed can make as many memories as possible but also to help the children in the future financially. 

Thanks so much to all who have donated.



On behalf of the amazing couple i would like to express my utmost appreciation for all the support from everyone who has donated and supported them so far on this very sad journey. We are sincerely grateful to RSVP Magazine and the Mirror group for all their support which is continuous even as we write this thank you. I would really appreciate the continued support to the fund page. Karen and her hubby are astounded to see so much love coming their way in the comments and messages. The out pouring of love is over whelming and really appreciated. As for ourselves here on the go fund me page we are hoping to raise as much as possible to support Karen and Ed and their three beautiful children over the coming months and beyond, We are most grateful for all your support and hope that you will continue to support us on our fund raising and sharing of the fund page with all your friends. To have two parents struck with a terminal illness at the same time is beyond devastating for both karen and Ed, their children and their families and very hard for all to comprehend as you can imagine. So Thank you to all of you beautiful people.
