My sister Helen1

Hi ladies, my sister was an active member of your group. I just have a look in order to support her.

Sadly Helen1 died on Dec 22nd just gone. Her scan in nov showed extensive liver mets and treatment was stopped and she was referred to the palliative care team.. She had no pain and she had a sense of peace in her and for someone who had fought it all the way , no fear of dying. We are all devestated.

She had a great quality of life while on her chemo n had no real side effects. She was so happy with the team in UCHL especially her consultant dr McCormack . She felt they gave her the best chance . RIP

keep up the fight

Regards

Mairead

    So sorry to hear the news of Helen. Left a message for you on Gwyn's poem blog instead of here by mistake

  • Dear Mairead

    Thanks for letting us know. I'm really sorry to hear this news of Helen. She was such a lovely lady - so determined to get on with her life and live it to the full despite having cancer and really very little remission over the last two years. She was always there for us with advice and support and then in November last year posted up to say that her third line of treatment wasn't working. I've been wondering how things were going as we hadn't heard more.

    This is a devastating time for you. Helen remains a model for us all. It was uplifting to know that she didn't suffer any pain and had few side-effects from the chemotherapy. She was a brave woman and I much admired her for her positive attitude and acceptance of her fate.

    Now is the time for grief and for us to send our heartfelt condolences at the loss of a wonderful sister.

    with love x Annie
