Story

Every year our outside Christmas Lights bring a lot of joy and good cheer to hundreds of people. We always leave a tub outside and all donations go to my Dad's Memorial Fund at the Cobalt Unit, Cheltenham.

My Dad was a wonderful, gentle man who at the young age of 60 was diagnosed with a secondary tumour in his neck which proved to be cancerous. For the next 18 months he bravely underwent radiotherapy and several operations, but sadly the primary site was never found. It was believed it was probably deep in his bowel. He died aged 62 on my birthday, 5th July 2000. We miss him so much.

The Cobalt Unit (Registered charity 1090790) helped Mum and Dad immensely during that 18 months and continued to support us after he fell asleep. His fund is our thanks for the work they do. Our lights have raised over £100 each year and this year we'd love to double it. The grand turning on will be 1st December. Please help if you can.

      Darling Frank; radiotherapy, chemotherapy, major surgeries...you were so brave. "I'm fine, in myself I'm fine" was your mantra. Miss you always and for ever.
