I am starting up this page to help this beautiful family that are going through such a devastating time. Kev, Di and Ellie ( 15) have always helped in their community, raised money for charity, Di was a Govornor for Health and safety at the local primary school and Kev is a full time fire fighter. They've done so much for other people over the years that I was hoping that their kindness can now be paid forward. I know there are some lovely, kind and generous people out there that want to help, even if it's just £1 that you can afford. Those £1 's will add up so please don't think your £1 won't make a difference because it will.
Di was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer just under a year ago. she started Chemo and was responding well however, the cancer was aggressive and has returned to take this beautiful woman away from her loving family. Ellie is sweet 16 in 2 weeks time, her mom won't be here in body to see that. Ellie has been unbelievably strong and carried on at school through out all time seeing her mom, staying with her at night, watching to see if her mom is still breathing. It's just heartbreaking. Ellie even managed to get 5 certificates at school, how commendable is that?
It's Ellie' last year at school, she has her prom too. It's going to be so hard emotionally for them all.
Kev has been working 2 jobs whilst being by the side of his beloved wife of 21 years ( been together for 26 years) and also being there for their daughter Ellie. I can't even imagine how hard this is for them and I'm amazed at how remarkable, how strong they are as a loving family. Kev lost his mom this year in February to cancer too, Ellie lost her Nan. Di lost her dad to cancer 4/5 years ago too, Ellie lost her grandad.
Please please can you help by donating to ease the pain of the funeral bill. It's normally around 4 k these days which is so much and with just one income coming in, it's just more for kev to think about. It would be wonderful if we could show Kev and family how wonderful people can be and want to help.
finally, it was Di's birthday yesterday, just 53years of age, her last ever birthday sadly.
It costs about £2 for a decent card in Tesco, so please help by donating just £1 or more if you can, to show how wonderful humanity can be.
Di just has days/ hours left now, I know money can never ever replace Kevs wife, Ellie's mom, the moments that will be missed like special birthdays, prom, graduation, engagement, wedding and even grandchildren hopefully but we can help take some pressure off by helping with the cost of giving Di a beautiful send off.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. If you can not donate then please could I ask that you share this post. With the powers of Facebook, hopefully we can get the amount by sharing. Thank you again.
