I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

In memory of

My husband Robert

03 Jan 1963 - 08 Mar 2019

6 years ago my husband had a malignant melanoma in the form of a mole on his neck. It was 0.6ml thick and was removed successfully leaving him with 38 stitches. Follow up appointments confirmed there was a very small risk of this returning and he was discharged from dermatology after 1 year.

Fast forward to December 2018 and we were dealt with the awful news that this dreadful disease had returned. Only this time it had spread. My beautiful husband had metastatic melanoma and was told this was terminal.

I watched as my husband, the strongest man I know deteriorated very quickly and on 8th March 2019 he sadly passed away leaving our children, myself and Rob's family completely devestated and heartbroken.

This is the 3rd year i will do the race for life and it will most definitely be the hardest but I do this in memory of my soul mate Robert Crook.

Please donate to help find a cure x
