In memory of
My incredible Gramps
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR YOUR KIND DONATIONS - I HAVE HIT MY TARGET 💗💙 My incredible Grandad was diagnosed with Incurable Lung Cancer in May 2021, Despite already battling IPF (Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis) & Coming to the end of his years long battle with this, The doctors prodicted he wouldn't see his birthday in October. There was many stays in hospital, many ambulance trips & Despite the short life expectancy he wanted to have Chemo to live just a little bit longer. I gave birth to my first child in February 2021 & Mia was gramps' absolute world - Without Mia, I'm sure he would of gone a lot sooner. He had pictures of her, that he would take into hopsital with him & bore all the nurses showing them, Nan also said he would do the same at home when the carers came round. The last time I saw gramps over Christmas, We had a good chat & He was telling me how he will absolutely see Mia's 1st Birthday on the 24th February, He was adamant. He took his oxygen out and walked us all to the door as we said goodbye. On the 8th February 2022, I had a phone call off my mum saying he had been taken in to hospital - In the nicest possible way I just thought, He'll be in for a couple of days & out again like he always was. This time didn't feel any different. Until the evening came, Mum phoned me in tears saying he had hours left, Now we live in Yorkshire & He was in Hereford, I was flapping round trying to make arrangements & 2 hours later I had the dreaded phone call, That he had gone 💔 Just a couple of weeks before Mia's birthday - He physically couldn't fight anymore. This man wasn't just a grandad to me, He raised me alongside my mum & nan from a baby. He was the permanent male figure in my life, He taught me how to ride a bike, Took me on holidays, took me trick or treating & Use me as an excuse to pop in the pub on the way back from a bike ride. He was the 1 person I could call in a crisis and he would be there. Just 1 being, when I locked myself out of my house & He came to my rescue within 10 mins & took me to Will's work to pick up the spare keys. I miss him so so much. This is my reason for doing this... He fought until the very end, he never let pain get the better of him & that's exactly what I'm going to do... I am going to push myself every single day & I absolutely will NOT give up. I am also thinking of all the other incredible, brave people who cancer has also touched/destroyed.
