Things got worse and Beki had to stop the chemotherapy. By April 2017 the cancer had spread to her spine. She was struggling with her eyesight and lost the use of her legs. Despite all this she battled on like the true fighter she was.
Beki returned to LOROS when the pain became too much and she needed 24 hour care. LOROS is the most beautiful, relaxing and caring place which helped us all to be strong and take care of her. Right up to the time when she could not talk very much, family and friends visited every day to support her and ourselves. On Sunday 28 May, Beki passed away peacefully in LOROS surrounded by her family.
One of Bekis wishes was that I wrote to you all and said a massive Thank You for all your kindness and care throughout her cruel and awful illness. Family, friends and neighbours gave Beki so much love and support and words simply cannot express how proud and privileged we feel to live in such a wonderful community. A staggering £14,000 was raised and all the money donated has been given to LOROS and Macmillan. At the Celebration of her Life, another £1,600 was donated and that was also given to LOROS.
Thank you all for the kind cards and presents. They are now in a memory box for us to look at whenever we want a moment to share with our beautiful Beki.
So our hearts go out to you all. Many, many thanks. Jane and Leigh Holmes, Richard Berrington, Ben, Ross, Ffion and Django (her four legged friend).
