    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    The average UK funeral costs around £3500. Even the smallest donations will go a long way.

    On Thursday 27th October, Sue Adams had an accident that resulted in a traumatic brain injury, this placed her in a natural coma and she was in the ICU for 9 days.

    Unfortunately the brain damage was too severe and she did not survive her injuries. She passed away peacefully, aged 59, at 05:00 on Saturday 5th November surrounded by her family and loved ones.

    She is survived by her daughter Becka, 28; son Rob, 26; and Poppy Dog, 9.

    For those of you that knew Mum well, you'll know that she has suffered enormously over the last 5/6 years with her health. She had Type 1 Diabetes, kidney failure, and 2 rounds of spinal surgery - one that had serious complications which would affect the rest of her life.

    In 2015, she received a double transplant of a Pancreas and Kidney. No more Diabetes, and a new lease on life. She still had other health problems to combat, but was on her way to better health and should have been well on her way to finally enjoying her early retirement. Sadly, this was not meant to be.

    The final week was in most ways torture, not knowing what would happen and waiting, however it meant everyone got to say goodbye in some way. I got to hear from friends and family just how much she meant to them, and how loved our sleeping beauty was. I'll cherish those last days forever.

    We will announce funeral arrangements once they've been finalised, however looking around I now see just how costly these occasions can be. So we would like to ask that instead of the usual flowers or tributes, please donate to this page to help fund Mum's funeral - lets give her the send off she deserves.

    Thanks x

      Sue was my boss for many years, working out of Building SO66 in the Naval Base. She was certainly a bit special! My condolences to you both.
