In memory of
Amar Kaur Dhillon, Parmjit Dhillon and Manjit Liddar
When it comes to work, family, friends and everything in between in our day to day lives it can become easy to get caught up in our fast paced lifestyles and forget to give back or make a contribution to a greater good. Whether it's volunteer work or raising money for ANY cause there's never not enough time to try and do your part. Both me and my mum (Jaswinder) want to say a few things about the people we have lost to cancer and who are the drive for us do this 5k... Amar Kaur Dhillon, mum and nani, passed away from cancer of the womb when I was only 6 years old. The only memory I have of her is of her lying on her bed ill and not a day goes by where I don't think of her and miss her. Manjit Liddar, both sister and massi, battled breast cancer and was in remission for years. With her will to carry on she fought away cancer only for it to come back and take her from our lives. Manjit also did the race for life when she was in remission, fighting her cause and helping others. This is exactly the type of person she was, selfless. Even battling cancer she dealt with it without trying to burden those around her and even in her last moments only cared for how we, as a family, were more so than herself. Manjit will forever be an inspiration to all of us and will remain in our hearts. Parmjit Dhillon, both brother and mama, who although passed away from a heart attack earlier this year also battled throat cancer and suffered from it for nearly 6 years which made him frail. Parmjit shared a lot of memories with us all, a recent memory is going to Glasgow and sitting and watching a film with him, to which at the end he then said "I am very glad you took your time out to watch this film with me". This is just one of many examples of how Parmjit did not need or want a lot from people but was always very grateful. We just want our families who dealt or are dealing with these tough moments in life to know we love you and are here with you.
