Weʼve raised £3,557 to raise funds for Diabetes UK and Dove Valley First Responder in memory of our Mum
- Funded on Monday, 2nd October 2017
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
This is our second JustGiving page. Our first closed in June with a total of £2,383.34. Our hearts were broken and our lives were change forever last December, when our beautiful Mum passed away in her sleep unexpectedly. She was 46 years old when she died, literally at the point of her life where she and our Dad were really living. Also the year where she finally became a Nanny and could not wait for the first Christmas with her Grandson, Charlie. Our parents worked extremely hard to bring up us 3 boys and they were very young when they had us. At 21 years old, they both had 3 boys under the age of 2, so their twenties were spent devoting their lives to ensuring we had everything and more that we needed. Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer in her early 30's, which after a 10 year battle, she managed to beat and eventually begin to live her life. Mum's health was never great, after battling with the C word for so long, it's inevitable that she was to suffer. She constantly had a headache and always felt fatigued. She was suffering with Arthritis and diagnosed with Diabetes. But Mum always smiled and always laughed. She had a wicked sense of humour and by no doubt, was the bravest, most inspirational person we ever knew. Its so cruel that she has gone, its worse that there is nothing that will bring her back. But we know the least we can do is do something amazing, to help others, in her memory. So we are cycling from John O'Groats, to Lands End this summer, to raise awareness and funds for Diabetes UK and Dove Valley Community First Responders, in memory of our wonderful Mum, Jodie Louise Rowlinson. Our Mum died from a complication from her Diabetes. This is why we want to raise awareness, we had no idea that this could have ever happen to anyone, never mind our Mum, especially with her beating cancer. Also, the Dove Valley Community First Responders worked so hard to try to revive our Mum. Thank you for donating. We really appreciate anything and everything!
