Remembering Joan Fellows
Fundraising for Crossroads Care Association
There are more than 6m unpaid carers in the UK supporting family and friends. Carers can often experience feelings of isolation, stress and financial worries which can affect their own health. Through its national network, Crossroads Care helps carers make a life of their own outside caring.
Charity Registration No. 282102
Joan was a wonderful wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend to many. She was well loved by everyone who knew her and donated her later years to helping others and charity work. She was generous and selfless.
She was also very family orientated and they traveled all over the world together. She wanted to experience everything life could offer including horse back riding around the Grand Canyon, trekking the Rocky Mountains of Canada and exploring the delights of Egypt.
Over the past 5 months Joan had suffered from Acute Myeloid Leukaemia and throughout this period she fought her hardest against the disease and never gave up. However on the morning of the 17th July 2008 Joan passed away with her husband Arthur at her side.
The family would like all donations for Joan to go to the Crossroads Association, as they in collaboration with Hospice at Home helped to care and support Joan and her family over the last few months of her life, and allowed her final wish of dying at home. Without their kindness this would have been an even more traumatic period for all.
