    Story

    I am going to talk about the C word so please be warned !
    Christmas has always been our mummy's favourite time of the year.
    As we grew up this never changed.
    Our bedrooms became "family bedrooms" so boyfriends,husbands and then our children could spend Christmas with us at mum and dads and we could all be together. Mum spent months planning this. Cooking, cleaning, shopping & wrapping and we would all turn up spend christmas trashing the house and eating them out of house and home then reluctantly leave always having had "the best Christmas ever"
    When our children got bigger and had boyfriends of their own we simply could no longer fit and had to take it in turns to spend Christmas at mums. This never really sat well with her and every year she talked about renting a big house and spending Christmas together again.
    As with most things in life the years have flown by and we don't seem to have managed to get ourselves organised and make mums dream come true but this year things have changed and a different C word once again rocked our world.
    On July 1st 2016 the bottom fell out of our world. We were given the devistating news that our beautiful mummy has terminal cancer. She has signet ring endocarcinoma of the small bowel which has spread to her bones and there is no cure.
    We have screamed, cried, crumpled in a heap and panicked at the thought of carrying on without her in our lives but we don't have a choice.
    So just as our kind, loving,caring mum has taught us we picked ourselves up, and together worked out how we are going to deal with this life changing news.
    And this is how we are going to do it.......
    We will make every second count.
    We will love and support each other every step of the way.
    We will make memories to carry with us forever.
    We will make as many of her dreams come true as we can.
    and that's why we have made this page.
    We are going to try and raise some money so we can spend this Christmas together.
    Please help us if you can x

      Update from the Page owner

      Thank You for all your donations and support. Our beautiful mummy passed away on Tuesday 4th October in Myton hospice surrounded by her family until the very end.She was so loved and will be sorely missed. One of mums last wishes was that if she could not be there at Christmas we would take her with us in our hearts and make this the best Christmas ever. Right now we all feel that even breathing with out her is hard but we all promised and will try to be strong and keep our promise to her. We hope this is ok with you all. Thank you x
