I lost my Grandad to Mesothelioma 4 years ago and it never gets easier. My Grandad was an amazing man who loved music, gardening and spending time with his family. There isn't a single picture of my Grandad and I where I'm not sitting on his lap. He was a kind, gentle person who would do anything he could for his family and friends so I would like to do everything I can to help raise money for Cancer Research UK.
In the UK around 2,700 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. It is quite a rare cancer, but it is becoming more common.
About 40 percent of mesothelioma patients survive at least one year. Less than 10 percent survive longer than five years.
My Grandad very quickly declined in the year that he was told he had this cancer. He became very tired, wheezy and lost a LOT of weight. but he never once lost his cheeky personality and flirted with all the nurses at the hospital.
I know this would mean a lot to him and it would also mean a lot to me if you were able to donate.
No matter how big or small, you donation can really help and make a huge difference.
Thank you in advance.
