My Story

Thank you for visiting our Donate in Memory page for Melvyn Hackney. Our Dads mission in life was not to merely survive……… but to thrive. To live with passion, compassion, humour and some style. The below poem called ‘A life Well Lived’ really resonated with us when we think fondly of him Happiness is not a goal……. it is a by-product of a life well lived, Filled with moments, Sweet and sad, With smiles…………..and sometimes tears With friendships formed and good times shared And laughter through the years A life well lived is a legacy, Of joy and pride and pleasure, A living lasting memory, Our grateful hearts will treasure. Our Dad had a life well lived! Family and friends meant the world to him, and he meant the world to us all. He was immensely proud of his four grandchildren and he was a fantastic Granddad. We have so many memories you will be in our hearts forever, A living lasting memory Our grateful hearts will treasure.

Survival rates for many types of lymphoma has increased significantly – now, twice as many people survive non-Hodgkin lymphoma as in the 1970s. And four out of five people will survive Hodgkin's lymphoma, compared to fewer than half of patients in the 1970s. Help Cancer Research UK improve effective treatments and survival with your donation.
