Hi. We would like to begin by thanking you all for your donations and support over the past few weeks. As you are aware, John sadly passed way in the early hours of Friday 14th December. Debbie and John loved pottery painting and had planned a pottery day last week however due to John's rapid deterioration, the day had to be cancelled. As this is no longer possible, Debbie would like to donate some of the money raised to the Scouts, some to Thames Hospice and use the rest for a memorial for John. Thanks in advance.
My Uncle John was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer on September 16th 2018. He had been feeling unwell for a few weeks and had started losing lots of weight however the doctors insisted he just had an infection. Many visits later, his cancer was discovered and he was told that it was terminal and had spread to other organs in his body. 6 weeks ago he started chemotherapy to try and prolong his life in hope to spend more time with his family and see his daughter Emily get married in June, but sadly he is in so much pain and too unwell to continue treatment. Having been told he has weeks left to live, I want to try and give him, Debbie and the girls an opportunity to make a few last memories together and have an early Christmas. Please help!
