We lost this amazing man in November 2016 after almost 3 years of battling bowel cancer. He is missed every second of every day and we'll never get over losing him. Thinking of everyone who have lost their lives to this awful disease and those who continue to fight against it. You're all amazing.
For my friend Sheena who sadly died two years ago. We were both diagnosed with Bowel cancer at the same time, had our ops, chemo etc shared an Oncologist. I not only lit it for her but for me too. I was diagnosed again just over a year ago.
Stay safe everyone 💜
Our Dad died of bowel cancer in July 2016 at the age of 81. He was the most amazing Dad to us four girls and husband to Mum. He lived life to the full and while we all miss him hugely we remember him with a smile.
I lit my candle in memory of my lovely sister-in-law Jackie who sadly died in 2016 after a 2 year fight with bowel cancer. She was still always smiling, happy and positive, and doing volunteer work, a real inspiration.
It’s always great to hear good stories and the hope for those going through cancer, but there’s so many times it isn’t a happy ending. So it’s nice to be able to do something to remember lost loved ones. Remembering my Dad with love.
My Dad passed away December 2011 after a 6 week battle. I attach a lovely photo of me with Dad (Derek Kenny) in January 2004. He looks radiantly healthy here and was loving being a Grandpa to my 18 month son at this point. My biggest hope is that in my son's lifetime, a cure will be found. My son is almost 18 - I do believe it will happen.
I lit my candle for my nanny, Barbara, who passed away in February 2016. Bowel cancer took her quickly, and I never got to say goodbye properly but I am grateful for your work which is giving more people the time to say goodbye and the opportunity not to say goodbye at all.
I lit this candle in memory of my Father-in-Law; Geoff Flood who died in 2000, In memory my Dad; Thomas Wright who died in 2004. In memory of my Mother-in-law; Dot Flood who died in 2011. In memory of my Sister; Lyn Johnston who died in 2015. 4 of my family dying of Bowel Cancer
Today at 3pm I lit my wee candle to “Remember Together ” my friend Diane who I miss lots. Also for all those who have battled this awful disease and lost, and those still battling . This is their first year of doing this I hope they carry on for years to come . 💚💚
Never forgetting Benj who lost his life to bowel cancer in April 2019 aged 33 #nevertooyoung . Thank you @bowelcanceruk for organising #remembertogether to share with those who have lost a loved one to bowel cancer and for the continued support that you offer to the bowel cancer community. April is bowel cancer awareness month, it is SO important that we continue to raise the awareness and not forget that if bowel cancer can be detected at an earlier stage it is very treatable.
My candle is lit today in memory of my lovely Mumma for #RememberTogether. April is Bowel Cancer awareness month, and if you’re looking for a charity to support, please consider Bowel Cancer UK- the work they do to support those with bowel cancer is incredible. Now more than ever we need to support charities like this as much as we can ❤️ #Bowelcancer #ThisisforyouMum #MotherlessDaughter #Screenat50 #BowelCancerUK #TeamBowelCancerUK
Tomorrow will be 18 yrs since David and I first met. David was the funniest, cleverest and most charming person I've ever known . I miss his support and encouragement, but most of all I miss him. I'll love you always, David x.
I was diagnosed with Stage 2 bowel cancer in 2016, it progressed to metastatic peritoneal cancer in 2017, after 18 months of immunotherapy and HIPEC surgery in 2019 I currently have no evidence of disease. We remember those not so fortunate.
