Help Gavin support his girls after losing their beloved mum Louise to cancer

On June 4th, Gavin said goodbye to his beloved wife, Louise Ngaei-Clearkin, after she contracted an extremely aggressive form of uterine cancer. He and their two young daughters have been left reeling after losing Louise within weeks of her diagnosis. Your contribution will help Gavin provide ongoing care and crucial support for his girls, aged eight and six, at this incredibly difficult and distressing time.

Louise found out she had a rare form of uterine cancer, called Leiomyosarcoma, in the April school holidays. The tumour grew rapidly and, sadly, it did not respond to chemo.

Louise was a truly devoted mum to her girls and the family’s shining light. Gavin, a nutritionist who helps both ordinary people and elite athletes, is the family’s main earner. He’s spent the last two months juggling work, family commitments, while caring for both Lou and the children. As a self-employed contractor, he won’t get bereavement leave, sick leave or any financial help whatsoever, to take time off to look after his daughters.

Our beloved Lou was also a talented artist and stylist, as well as a funny, caring and supportive friend to so many people. She was also an incredibly loved daughter, much cherished sister, cousin, niece, and auntie.

Your donation will be of real help to Gavin – allowing him to maintain as normal a life as possible for his daughters. It would help him to pay for, for example, funeral costs and childcare, giving him the space to focus on the girls, now and in future.

Any contribution you can make is enormously appreciated.
