Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. We're going through something that is all too familiar for too many families. Yvonne, our beloved mother, wife, daughter and friend lost her battle with breast cancer after several complications, surgeries and chemotherapy.

For anyone who was lucky enough to meet Yvonne, they will know how outgoing, positive and kind she was. She was the life of the party, a fountain of knowledge, a shoulder to cry on and a lover of life. This is a difficult time for everyone but Yvonne is at peace and went with a lifetime of beautiful memories. 

We ask that you do two things at this time. First, give a small donation instead of flowers which will go straight to Cancer Research U.K. The charity are working hard to beat cancer, and Yvonne would want others to have more time to enjoy life, she would want to give parents the chance to see their children grow up, and she'd want families to have a little while longer to say goodbye. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure however we will also take donations on the day of her funeral. 

And, secondly, as you reflect on how she touched your life, we ask that you do something kind in honor of Yvonne.  She'd want you to help a stranger, hug a loved one or tell someone how much you love and appreciate them. Yvonne always thought of others in all of her actions and we hope you can channel something of this as you remember her. 

From all of Yvonne's family, in the face of your tremendous loss, we hope you treasure your memories with Yvonne. She leaves a void that will never be replaced xxxxxxxxxxxx
