My mother Sue sadly lost her fight to lung cancer on the 13th June 2007. My mother was a courageous woman who was suddenly diagnosed on the 10th of February 2007 with her terminal illness. She did not want to be a victim to this horribly disease. On discovering her illness she took control of her life and future wishes. She showed tremendous strength, courage and made sure she did not waste what prescious time she had left. Throughout her care and treatment she sent important time with her family and close friends, living life as full as she could. During this time she moved home, had a family holiday, had the wedding of her dreams, travelled to special places with her husband Mike and finally focused on completeing her dream garden where she spent her last days of her life. She was truely an amazing and inspirational woman to all who knew her.
