Please donate not just in memory of my wife, Patricia Melinek, but in memory of loved ones everywhere.
I started teaching myself the piano aged 12, after I was evacuated from London during WW2. When my wife died from Ovarian cancer I started fundraising for Cancer Research UK through live piano performances. I have 5 children and 14 grandchildren and we all miss her very much.
After lockdown started my grand-daughter helped me take my performances onto TikTok as Grandad_Pianist. None of us expected this to take off so well and I am bemused and blown away by the generosity, likes, 24,000 followers and 500,000 views. I hope you enjoy what I do and if you can, donate in memory of the millions of people lost to cancer every year. If each of the viewers had donated just £1 we would have half a million pounds for Cancer Research by now! Thank you for your support and whatever you can afford to give.
