My Beautiful Nan


Sadly my nan passed away on Sunday after 5 years of suffering with CBD, thankfully she went peacefully and not how she could have done. She was an amazing and inspirational woman and I will miss her so much. I am just pleased that she is no longer suffering with this terrible illness. My grandad was married to her for 48 years and looked after my nan by himself throughout the illness and he is devastated about losing his wife. This has made me more keen to raise money for psp association, I recently raised £200 for the psp association but its not enough, a cure needs to be found to prevent others suffering the way my nan did. My nan meant the world to me and it hurts so much that she's gone, at 66 years old she had so much to still see, I'm just glad she got to meet my son a few times. Rest in Peace Nan xxx

So sorry for your loss and hope your granddad will be able to recover his enjoyment of life with your love and support. If we all continue to raise money for PSP hopefully they will come up with something to help eventually.Your Nan would be proud of you, Hugs.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Much love to you and Grandad (and the rest of your family!) She was clearly a very special lady and would be very proud of your determination to raise funds to help others.

Take care of yourself and give yourself time to grieve

hi jill.i think you are so brave.i have not told my wife that she has had troubled me but myself and my children think there would be no benifit to tell her and i dont think she would understand.she was being treated for depression for a long time maybe about two years when things started to change.found it hard to dress her self couldnt use knife and fork .thats when they brought in the neuroligist.then all the tests started three mir,s two lumbar punctures cat scan pet scan and the rest.when the diagnosis came that was end of all much as to say thats it no more can be done.norrie

rthrorp I am sorry for your loss, take comfort in knowing there will be no more suffering. I will pray for you. I think it is a wonderful idea you raising money, I also (live in U.S.) would like to do some fundraising so othere will not go through what our loved ones are going through.

Oh, my heart goes out to you and yours so deeply and profoundly. You're right, your Nan was much to young and had much left to see, do, and give. You and your Nan, and friend and family, will be held close in my hear and my prayers. When things settle a bit, tho I know it takes a while, I hope you do re-engage in your fundraising efforts in her honor.

With empathy and my condolences,

Judy J

Thank you everyone for your kind words, it has been a very difficult time and we take comfort in the fact that she is no longer suffering. She was a truly amazing woman and heaven has gained a beautiful angel. I will be doing lots to try and raise as much money as possible for this excellent cause as I wouldn't want anyone to suffer like she did x
