Doug Marketis 28/9/1945 - 21/4/2022

As many of you know my beautiful Dad sadly passed away in April 2022 after being diagnosed with stomach cancer that had spread to his liver, lungs and gall bladder. From diagnosis to death was a shockingly short 18 days. Sadly stomach cancer hides and mimics other illnesses and is often not diagnosed until it’s at stage 4 when there is little more that can be done. 

St Lukes Hospice were instrumental in the palliative care they gave my Dad and the care and compassion they showed to me and my family.  They make such a difference in a really awful and agonising time.

I am so happy to be fund raising and giving back a little something to those that do an amazing job in heartbreaking situations day in and day out.

Any donations no matter how small would be greatly appreciated.

Big love and thanks for reading Marie Xxx
