    Hi guys,

    Firstly thanks for taking a second to have a read. I've created this page to try and give some help to my Uncle Tommy who we recently found out has terminal pancreatic cancer.

    A couple of weeks ago Tommy went to a&e with extreme stomach pains and just the next day we were told the devestating news it was terminal cancer. This has shattered us as a family. Tommy is a smart, kind, selfless, humorous and all round good human being. He does not deserve this to be happening to him. Ever since he found out he has been so brave, painting on a huge smile and laughing and joking. The only thing he has thought of is his family and the consequences of what they will face in the imminent future. We don't know exactly how long he has, it pains me to say this but it isn't long.

    Tommy is a wonderful Dad to a brood of 11 children, the youngest who is Sarah at just 3 years old. He also has 3 lovely grandsons. Tommy at one point was a single father to these kids before he met Claire who now shares that responsibility and who will continue to care for them all. His kids are his whole life and he is truely an amazing father. From the minute he wakes up til he goes to sleep at night everything he does is for those kids.

    Now the purpose of this page is to help with the costs of a wedding for Tommy and Claire. We need to make it happen imminently. They deserve nothing more than one last amazing day filled with memories for Claire and the kids to cherish forever and Tommy to share treasured moments with them. We as a family are devastated and will do everything in our power to make that happen for them and ask if anyone can help no matter how small. Even if you can donate items or services towards the day please drop me a message on Facebook at Melissa Thomson. Any left over funs will all be used for the children and making sure they have as good a Christmas as they can.

    Thanks again for taking the time to have a read x
