Brain Tumour killed my mum exactly 15 years ago today.

At around 04.00 on the morning of 21st November 2002, I was woke up from the best sleep I had in ages. It was my cousin banging on my front door as some family members tried calling me but I didn’t even hear the phone as I was that tired.

It was my cousin Susan at the door to tell me that my mum had finally passed away in the hospice in Queen Margaret Hospital in Dunfermline. I had been at the hospice earlier, but I can always remember my dad saying to me to just “ go back home and that either him or my sister would call”.

It was cancer that killed my mum, a brain tumour and it was one of the most terrible things that myself and all our family have watched happen.

My mum was a young looking 65 year old woman. For many years my mum worked as a nurse and she had a really great way about her when helping anyone. I loved her very much and there’s not a day goes by that I don’t think about her.

Rest in peace mum
