    Don't have time to donate right now?


    On the 29th April, 2020 my wonderful husband Gary passed away at 3.40 am, with me by his side holding his hand.

    To say I am devastated is an understatement, but I am also grateful for 7 wonderful years together. He was the biggest light in my life other than my children, who he loved like his own.

    I have set up this JustGiving page as I want to thank the wonderful nurses and doctors at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, Ward 38 for their love & care for Gary. They were nothing but amazing, so caring, and have really looked after us both.

    Showing my appreciation by raising money for our #RealLifeHeroes is my way of giving back and if you could find it in your heart to donate; no matter how small, it will be received with gratitude. They deserve this.

    Losing someone is never easy. Losing someone like Gary – exceptionally difficult and heartbreaking. He was my world and always will be.

    Gary and I lived every moment. I have no regrets, he was the love of my life and taught me so much. Being able to be with him in his final hours has been the biggest gift to me and I am so grateful to Ward 38 for making Gary comfortable and being there to offer me love and support when I needed it.

    When Gary said the words 'Goodnight sweetheart' I knew he was ready. It was one of those moments that will sit in my heart forever, just 2 simple words. He really loved me and wanted me to know. I spent the next 40 minutes telling him he could go and how much I loved him. It feels frozen in time, but precious.

    To everyone on Ward 38 I will never forget your love and support and for helping me fulfil my wish to be my beloved's side in his final hours 🙏🏾

    To my soulmate Gary...

    Fly with the angels my darling, you have left the biggest void 💔
