    Moonlit Memories Walk

Our fundraising pages 4

  • Laura-Chapman17


    Back in March, I was invited by The Rowans, to the launch of The Moonlit Memories Walk and I was interviewed by The Portsmouth Evening News to help advertise it. 
    I must admit, I hadn't planned to participate this year, because it's hard to keep asking for sponsorship, but when they asked if they could use Dads story, to help promote the walk, I just couldn't say no. 

    On the 9th January, 2014, we lost our dear Dad, (Albert McCann) to secondary prostate cancer, MND & Alzheimer's disease. He had been an extremely fit man all his life & played for Portsmouth FC from 1962-1974. When he finished playing, his testimonial match against West Ham, attracted a crowd of 22,000.
    Another proud moment for Dad & us was in June 2012, when he was inducted into the Portsmouth FC Hall of Fame.
    Dad went downhill rapidly over Christmas and our GP advised us that maybe it was time for him to go into a home, but we refused, wanting to keep Dad at home and in our care as long as possible. We were fortunate enough to be referred to The Rowans Hospice at Home Team and from then on, he was visited 3-4 times a day & also night time care was generously provided. 
    The Rowans team were incredible, so kind, caring and compassionate, I cannot find the words to fully describe, how wonderful the staff were and the difference they made to Dad's final days, and to us, as a family, being able to be with him until the very end.

    Last year a team of 9 of us,  Albie's 'A' Team, walked 12 miles at midnight & raised £2,532.50 for The Rowans.
     
    This year, my daughter Sophie & I , Albie's 'B' Team, are walking in Dad's memory and we hope the money we raise can in some way help towards the most difficult time in another family's life.

Thank you for taking the time to view my page and any donations however small are gratefully received. Love Catherine xx

    On the 9th of January 2014, we lost my father, (Albert McCann), to secondary prostate cancer , MND, and Alzheimer's disease. He had been an extremely fit man his whole life, and played for Portsmouth FC from 1962 until 1974 when he finished playing, and had a testimonial against West Ham that attracted a crowd of 22,000. Another proud moment for Dad and his family was in June 2012 when he was inducted into the Portsmouth FC Hall of Fame.

    As a family it was devastating to see the affect these wicked diseases had on both his mind and body.

    Dad went down hill rapidly over Christmas, and we called our GP out to him on the 3rd of January, he advised that maybe it was time for him to go into a home, but we refused, wanting to keep him at home , and in our care, as long as possible. We were fortunate enough to be referred to the Rowans Hospice at Home Team, and from then on he was visited 3 to 4 times a day, and night time care was also generously provided. The Rowans team were incredible, so kind, caring and compassionate , I  cannot find the words to fully describe, how wonderful these staff were, and the difference they made to Dad's final days, and us as a family, being able to be with him until the very end. 

    There really are Angels here on earth, and they work at the Rowans, I wish I could remember all their names, and I don't want to name just a few, but these very special people know who they are. My sister, some good friends and I are doing the Moonlit Memories Walk in Dad's memory , and hope the money we raise can in some way help towards the most difficult time in another family's life.

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

    The Rowans Hospice at Home Team provided fantastic care and support to my Dad, Albert, allowing him to spend his final days in the comfort of his own home with his family. As a family we are requesting that donations be given instead of flowers at the funeral.

    Albert's funeral is at 10:30 on Thursday 23rd January 2014 at St Joseph's Church, West Street, Havant.

    Please donate so that other families may benefit from this exceptional service in the future.

    Many thanks

    Mark McCann
