    Story

    Im hoping to raise money on behalf of my friend lauren and her children.

    On the 31st October 2017 mike was first diagnosed with acute myeloid with his mother and sister by his side in the hospital them words nobody can ever prepare you for one of the worst forms of leukaemia

    After months of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant he hit remission and everything was looking great..

    Then on the 23rd August 2018 he was re diagnosed They give him 2 weeks to 2 months max to live when he was re diagnosed but he held on, his aim was to make it until Christmas and being the strong fighter he was, he was determined . Sadly, Christmas Day he was to poorly have fun like everybody did.

    On the 3rd of January he had a boost of energy so decided to have a late Christmas Day where they all exchanged gifts and had an amazing day!

    that night, he fell asleep and didn’t wake up, on the 5th january at 9:50 mike peacefully passed away went for his ‘big sleep’ as he called it,

    mike kept his promise to himself that he would see Christmas out with his children, Paige who’s 10 & Charlie, 9 ❤️

    Mike was one of a kind and is missed by his family beyond words .

    unfortunately, Mike didnt have a funeral as he didnt want to put extra financial strain onto the family at such a difficult time, the family would love to get Mike a headstone, the least he deserves and somewhere for herself and their children to visit, please donate as little or as much as you can to give those two children somewhere they can go to talk to their daddy.

    thankyou x

      I’ve just been reading the article about Mike in which he came across as such a selfless and caring person. I hope Mike’s family are able to get their chance to say goodbye properly.

      Just read the story in the MEN and it completely touched me having recently lost someone close to cancer. I hope you can now find some kind of closure. Thoughts go out to all the family xx

      Even when he was at a time of end, he thought about his family! May you find comfort in having a special place where you can connect with him! R.i.p
