Medical equipment in honour of our dad

Hello, my name is becca. This man here is our dad. He was kind, supportive, generous, loving, patient, funny and so emotional, to mention only a few qualities. He's taught us and our children so much over our lifetimes! 

Our dad was admitted to Diana Princess of Wales hospital in grimsby on the 29th December with breathing difficulties. He was tested negative and placed on a green, covid free ward.

Sometime between admission, despite 3 covid tests in 6 days, he contracted Covid19 and was tested positive on the 4th January. 

He was placed on a covid ward, and was treated by the most incredible, tenacious Dr's and nurses. Me, my sister and brother was called to his bedside on the 7th January, and we saw the harsh reality of the dreaded corona virus! 

We was given 2 breathing equipments (an air filter worn around the waist that was attached to a helmet) we was told there was only 5 in the whole hospital but we could use 2 of them till we didn't need them anymore.

With these 2 pieces of equipment we was able to sit with our dad, reliving a thousand memories, till he passed the following evening.

We feel the need, as a family, to purchase more of these. We know they cost just under £1,200 each but the value to us families and our poor dad and other sufferers, was beyond words.

We need your help to raise funds

Dad... We will love you forever, if we can go through life with half as much grace and dignity and all your other beautiful attributes, we will go very far indeed. You will be missed immeasurably. Night night my dad.

Now if you've got this far, go tell your special people how much they're loved and share this post to spread awareness... As if we need anymore awareness. And please help us to achieve our goal.

Its not right that our loved ones should suffer to the end alone. Any help is massively appreciated. Thank you ❤️

Please share our post to your Facebook so as many people see this as possible.
