My name is Laura and for the first time in my whol life I'm asking for help.
My grandad has been diagnosed with a brain, lung and kidney tumours and is terminally ill. There is nothing they can do and he he's been given 6-12 months to live.
He has said his wish is to see me marry my fiancé and father to our beautiful 3yr old daughter so he can wear his suit and medals from years of service in the army and walk me down the aisle with my dad.
I'm now trying to arrange a small ceremony wedding for us in the few months to make sure he can be there. However with no funds or savings this is proving difficult.
I'm wanting to raise a small amount of money to help us along the way and any extra raised I'll be donating to a charity of his choice.
I have never and would never dream of asking people for money but after everything my grandad has not only done for me but for everyone round him I would really like to make this happen.
Him and my nan used to foster disabled adults and care for them as well as give them a home. For the past 6years they have cared for my recent great grandad travelling from Weymouth to Wales every 3 weeks to be by his side and help him along side my great auntie who was his main carer. My great grandad sadly passed away a few weeks ago where it was bitter sweet relief and we were hoping my nan and grandad could both start to look after themselves until we were given this awful news of my grandads terminal illness. My nan missed her dads funeral to be at my grandads side and my grandad has done nothing but good things for other, including playing a huge part in my life of helping to bring me up. This isn't a case of wanting to do this for him but needing to do this for him so I can give something back to him for all he has done for us all.
Thanks for reading and I appreciate any help from anyone
