Gary 55, was a family man, a professional, a mentor and a
great human being.
He leaves behind his wife Vanessa and three young sons
James, Charlie and Henry. Gary and Vanessa were married for over 22 years.
Gary was diagnosed with malignant melanoma back in December
2013 and started immunotherapy under the care of Professor Dalgeish in November
2016 at which point things looked very difficult, but the impact on his pain,
well being and daily life was almost immediate leading to an all clear in April
2017. Sadly, he then became unwell and had to stop the treatment giving the
disease an opportunity to take hold and rapidly progress and he passed away
surrounded by love 9 July 2017.
His treatment gave
him a further 6 months of quality time with his family and friends in which
times many very special memories were made. Immunotherapy is the future of
tackling cancer and it is so important professor Dalgeish is supported
financially to continue his excellent work.
