A mother is losing her beautiful boy…

And that boy is losing a beautiful life.

Three weeks ago Tracey received the news that is every parents' worst nightmare. Daniel, her 28 year old son, has been dealt a cruel hand in the prime of his life. Daniel has been diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer and has weeks-short months to live. The most dreadful words that instantly changed his world and that of his family and friends.

Approximately three months ago Daniel began to feel unwell; he was getting indigestion and heartburn and was unable to sleep because of the pain. Daniel thought he had a stomach ulcer. With encouragement from his mum Tracey, he sought medical advice and was sent for diagnostic tests. It was a massive shock when he was diagnosed with aggressive adenocarcinoma of the stomach, a hideous incurable disease. Daniel is hoping to have chemotherapy but needs to be well enough to cope with this.

Daniel is devastated by his diagnosis. Only a month ago his future was clear and in front of him. To grow old with his girlfriend Rosie, to go on holiday, to buy a house and to be with the girl he loves. Rosie has given up her job to be by Daniel’s side so that in his darkest hours he will always have someone’s hand to hold.

Tracey is a nurse who may have cared for a loved one close to you through the final stages of their life. Tracey is a solo mum and desperately wants to care for Daniel at home, however without financial assistance this may not be possible.

We are asking for your help so Tracey can give the love and expert care to Daniel that she has given to so many others over the years. Any funds raised will be used to support Daniel and Tracey.

Soon, this cancer will all too quickly take away a son from his mother, a partner from his girlfriend, and a life from a young man who has everything to live for. It is now time for us to care for and support Tracey and Daniel in any way we can as they embark together on the most difficult journey of a lifetime.

We need your help to do this.

All funds raised will be used to support Tracey and Daniel with everyday living expenses while Tracey is caring for son and not drawing an income.
