Firstly, a big "Thankyou" to Steve for letting me use the forum like this.

Steve's given me permission to put a link to my justgiving fundraising page here.
www.justgiving.com/fundraising/stelladay1

My father-in-law, heartbreakingly, has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

I am walking in the London Marathon Walk on 23rd September along with my sister-in-law Sally, my niece Rebecca and my daughter Jasmine to raise funds for the Brain Tumour Charity.
It's easy and safe to donate via justgiving. Small donations are very welcome and, as the saying goes, "Every little helps."
Alternatively you could donate to Jasmine's page but please only donate to one.

And lastly, don't forget to gift aid your donation if you're a UK tax payer.
If you can't say something nice don't say nothing at all.

Hi Stella. I agree in thanking Steve for allowing this post. The Brain Tumour Charity is very close to my heart because my sister passed away from one and my 27 year old daughter is battling a Grade 4 Glioblastoma. I hope your father in law is not suffering too much. I will happily give a donation. Having done the 26 mile Moonwalk a few years ago, I know what a difficult challenge this is.

That's Steve. He always goes above and beyond where kindness is concerned.Thankyou Suemol for your kind donation. My father-in-law is not suffering but so very tired and somewhat confused at times. I'd like to wish you and your daughter all the very best.

Thanks Ajsmith for your kind donation. Thanks also to Stewart, Suemol and of course Steve, who also let me post here. I have almost reached my target. I don't think that should take long. Then all I have to do is walk 26 miles.
I'm happy to do it for such a great cause.

Many thanks for all donations so far and your kind wishes.
So far I have raised £170 of my £200 goal.
Sadly, John, my father-in-law passed away peacefully this morning.
We will be walking this marathon in his memory.
His swift diagnosis and sudden demise have brought home to me that brain tumours do not pick on a type.
It can happen to anyone.
Honestly, you could not have imagined a fitter or more remarkable 79 year old
