In 2016, my grandad was diagnosed with cancer. I watched him every week go down hill. At this point in time it hit me, knowing he isn’t going to watch me, or any of my family grow up anymore. So I thought what could I do to make him proud for the very last time. So I decided to raise money for Cancer Research and do a skydive. Unfortunately because of how Ill my grandad was, he couldn’t make it. But we all had videos we could show him. He was very proud.
Unfortunately shortly after my skydive, towards the end of 2016 he lost his battle to cancer. Still to this very day, it beats me and my family up knowing he’s not here. He was a massive part of our family, someone who never failed to put smiles on our faces. Always tried preparing us for our future, helping us out when we needed it. And finally being a massive inspiration to us all.
When losing my grandad, it left us all lost. My nanny trying to learn to be alone, to look after herself and her doggies and make her husband proud. My mum, trying so hard to realise her dad has gone and to look after her mum and all us making sure we all get through it together. And us girls, his grandchildren trying to remember the good times and remembering he’ll always be in our hearts. 💖
As a family, Me, my Mum, and my 2 sisters are doing the Pretty Muddy 5K run in aid of Cancer Research. It is something very close to our hearts for sure, and many others.
If there is anything we can do to help treatments for Cancer, we will do it. Therefore I’m asking everyone if you can spare any money to please donate to this page which will go straight to Cancer Research. It will mean so much to us, Cancer Research charity and everyone who has dealt with loss.
We are going to make you proud as a family Grandad. We all miss you. ❤️
