Holly's Story

By Caitlin (Holly's Step Sister)

Holly was an inspiration to everyone that knew her, she left foot prints in all our hearts and was extremely pretty! She always had a smile on her face throughout everything she was going through Holly didn't moan, cry or say 'why me?'.

Holly was diagnosed with a type 4 brain tumour in February 2014, she was suffering from ongoing migraines she went to the doctors several times and they said it will go away, it's just a virus! After going back to the doctors again, they said they would book Holly in for a CT scan. That night she got rushed in to hospital because she was very confused. That's when we got told that she has a brain tumour.

Less than a week after being told Holly had a tumour, she had her first operation to remove the mass. The doctors said they got most of the tumour, but she still had tiny remnants of the cancer cells. Holly had chemo therapy and radiotherapy for 6 whole weeks to destroy these cells. She had a month break before starting her next course of chemo. Holly was on her last month of treatment when we found out that she had beaten her first tumour. Unfortunately Holly fell ill again, we found out that she had got a second tumour which grew while Holly was on chemotherapy. Unfortunately this was in the back of the head and called 'The Beast!' this tumour took her from us, within 2 weeks!

Holly was an incredible brave person and every day was so strong. A heart as big as hers will never be forgotten. She lived every day with a smile and was just an incredible person. Holly was an inspirational woman and such a great sister, and was loved by many people. Memories that were made will never be forgotten.

With tears falling from our faces we watched her slip from our fingers, now knowing that she will be in no more pain. At the age of 22, on the 23rd of November 2014 Holly sadly past away.

We would like to turn Holly's short life into improving and extending someone else's life. We also would like to make people aware of brain tumours, so please help us improve others and PLEASE donate to this wonderful charity. This is for our angel.
