I would like to raise this money for my beautiful sister...it's a long story but will try and explain as best I can...It all started year before last on Dec 8th on my birthday my Dad was diagnosed with esophageal cancer....my sister was getting married that coming May to her partner of 14 years together who have a nine year old son.
Our Dad managed to fly from Ireland to England for the wedding during his chemo treatment...it was a tough time for all of us as when Linda should have been planning her wedding we were all taking turns to go home and help Mum take care of Dad...
The Wedding was in May and what a glorious day it was...Dad was able to walk my sister down the aisle followed by a huge applause as we were unsure if he could make it or not. But when he returned home he could no longer cope with the chemo and sadly passed away in September last year...4 months after the wedding...so at a time my sister would of been enjoying married life we still needed to go home to look after Dad in his final weeks....not a great time for any of the family...heart breaking...but my sister was still unable to settle into married life with everything else going on
Then in December last year my Sisters husband aged 44 died suddenly (heart disease) he was airlifted to hospital but they could not save him....we had to await autopsy results....Xmas day was so difficult trying to keep things together for my 9 year old nephew who had lost his Grandad..his Dad
..and then in January this year his Mum was diagnosed with esophageal cancer.....Linda has been through chemo treatment but she got too weak and they had to stop it...we are trying alternative treatments and need the funding to source these treatments...myself and my sister gave up our jobs to help look after them and would be so grateful for any donations to help us keep her here as long as we can.....Thank you for taking the time to read our story
