My amazing sister Sue Marshall was only 42 when she was diagnosed with cancer, blossoming into motherhood with her two and a half year little girl Isobel and her husband Vic. Nothing could of prepared her for the journey she was about to face. She had always looked after herself, and was a very strong and competitive runner. Sue discovered a lump on her chest and started getting unusually out of breath, she booked a visit to her GP, who suggested having a chest x-ray just to be cautious. Unfortunately the x-ray confirmed widespread tumours and further investigation and tests confirmed Ewing's Sarcoma, a condition rarely seen in adults.
An initial six rounds of chemotherapy showed very strong results, way beyond expectations, which allowed family life to continue a little longer. The therapy was grueling; however Sue never let this interfere with being the most fantastic mother she could be to Isobel and wife to Vic. She still got involved in trips to the zoo, theme parks, local toddler groups and just being round her friends and family, which Sue valued more than anything. Sue continued with the chemotherapy and exhausted six different lines of treatment over a 30 month period until all treatment options were eventually exhausted.
Sadly, Sue lost her fight and she slipped away peacefully on the 7th October 2016 with her husband and mother in law who she treasured dearly by her side. Isobel will always know her mummy is being looked after by the Angels and how courageous she truly was.
To this day Sue is greatly missed by all her family and friends and a message to Vic, Sue will be so proud of how you are raising Isobel you are one amazing person love you always bro!
