Story

Last year Aunty Gill gave us the chance to participate in our first Perth Santa Run by coming to Stirling to keep an eye on grandpa, who was getting frailer by the day in his battle against prostate cancer.

With grandpa being looked after the entire family attended the Perth Santa Run as Ruairidh and I were accompanied by the “Reido Support team”.

Sadly, on January 2nd this year Grandpa Campbell lost his battle with cancer and just nine months later we also tragically lost Gill as she too lost her battle with cancer.

Gill was diagnosed with bladder cancer in June 2015, just two weeks after she gave birth to Conor. After surgery and intensive treatment there was great hope Gill had beat this terrible illness. However, the results of a routine scan in June this year revealed Gill’s cancer had returned and sadly we lost Gill on September 26th.

Throughout her illness, Gill was treated in Station 15, University Hospital Ayr, and we as a family are hugely thankful for the care and support provided to us all by the dedicated team of nurses, doctors and auxiliary staff.

In the final days and hours of Gill's life, the Station 15 team treated Gill with the utmost care, professionalism, dignity and respect – and for that we will be forever grateful.

In memory of Gill we are all taking part in the Santa Run this year; Gill's husband Paul and son Conor plus the full complement of “StirlingReidos”. We are raising funds for Station 15, a very worthy cause and one very close to our hearts.

Thank you.

    Ten days to race day...went for a wee run myself last night. Pulled my achilles on Saturday that's taken a few days to settle down so wanted to test it out...slowed the pace and it held out OK. So that's good...as well as the Santa Run on the 10th I'm hoping to complete the Marcothon again this year...I need to run every day in December for 25 minutes or 3 miles, whatever comes first, so could really do without my achilles playing up...keeping my fingers crossed. Hoping to get a couple of boys out running tomorrow.

    Some of the team are not big runners so some training runs are being fitted in...not as many as probably required but some. Niall has been out the most with me and the wee fella has joined in too on one run. With less than three weeks to go to race day training will need to pick up for all Gallager-Reido team members:-)
