    Story

    My name is Sam; I am 34 and a single mother. My friends are writing this as sadly I no longer can.

    In April this year I received the devastating news that I had months to live. I was diagnosed with Agressive Motor Neurone Disease. I don't know when I will die, it could be tomorrow or in a few months. I am now in the last stages of MND.

    My greatest fear is not that I am dying - it is the welfare of my boys. I fear that Joey and Harry will go into care. My sister lives in Australia and has come over to care for me and the boys. My last wish is that my sister is allowed to have my boys once I am gone, to start a new happy life with her family.

    My friends had the idea to create a fundraising page so that I can die in peace knowing that my funeral, guardianship/legal fees and journey to Australia for my boys are covered. We are looking at over £15,000 - an impossible amount for me.

    My boys are watching me die and I am praying that they do not have to suffer more by going into care. I feel absolutely helpless; things are so desperate that my friends and I feel this is my last and only option. However small, a donation would make a world of difference to Joey and Harry's future. Thank you so much.

      It will be Sam's funeral in Banbury tomorrow (Wednesday January 10th) at 11.30am in St Mary's Church. Pippa says that everyone who wishes to come is welcome and afterwards the family will travel to the Crematorium for a private service. There will be a further celebration of Sam's life at The Church House on North Bar Street. Pippa and the family would like to thank everyone again who helped Sam and have raised money for the boys.
