MargaretPancreatic Cancer Action
In loving memory of Margaret Kelly who sadly passed away on 31st May 2020.
Margaret was the most amazing person: vibrant, beautiful and kind. She had the biggest heart and was so full of love and kindness that you couldn’t help but love her.
Sadly at the beginning of May 2020, she was diagnosed with cancer and within a week, her diagnosis was confirmed as terminal pancreatic cancer. She was given only a few short months to live.
We, her family, tried to stay positive and looked for alternative treatments, but sadly the cancer was just too aggressive.
She had a number of issues which had to be dealt with along with the management of her symptoms, all of which kept her in the care of the hospital for 3 weeks. During this time we were only allowed to visit her twice.
She was finally discharged and allowed home from the hospital on the evening of Tuesday 26th May. However we were heartbroken to see how quickly she deteriorated and she was admitted to hospital again on Saturday 30th May. She then passed away on the Sunday 31st May.
Any form of cancer is unfair, but pancreatic cancer is especially cruel as it robs you of time and the chance to fight it. The statistics show that normally by the time it’s diagnosed, it has already spread. Sadly, this was the case for Margaret. She was such a strong person and so mentally up for the fight, but just wasn’t given the chance to fight it.
We have set up a link to the charity Pancreatic Cancer Action, whose aim is to raise awareness and save lives through early diagnosis. This would give those unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer the chance to fight the disease and a much greater chance of survival.
