Story

For those of you don’t know her, this is Allison Kelly. Allison is a cracking archer and a friend.

Allison lives in Prudhoe , Northumberland with her partner of 27 years, Alan (58). Her beautiful 17 year old daughter Sophie will be 18 in August.

For those of you who don’t know, Allison has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. It isn’t the first time that the big C has impacted her life. Allison first suffered with it when she was 29.

Her dad died at 45 with Cancer of the pancreas. Her elder sister Lynne passed at 47 with Breast cancer. Her little sister Lucy died too, at 49 with breast cancer. Last year her half sister who is 30 was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer.

At a time when when everything in her world has been turned upside down, please can you help me to make Allison’s remaining time with her family more comfortable?

I have approached Allison to ask how her final days could be made better. She was very modest but I eventually got her to say that she’d love to have someone build a wardrobe in her bedroom and have someone paint all the walls.

Alan & Sophie have got most of the back garden cleared and plan to make it a nice lawn with some fencing, for Allison so sit out in, during those fine days. Allison feels it would make a huge difference to their time together. Anything to help finish the garden would also be brilliant.
