In memory of Sally Canning

Born: 16/05/1953 - Passed away: 12/07/2017

Hello lovelies

If you knew Sally Canning, you'll know what a gorgeous human being she was in every sense of the word. The kindness she has shown to so many women (and men, but especially women), in helping them unlock their potential has been humbling. Positivity radiated from her, and whether you liked it or not, it would always rub off on you, and make you see things differently. We, her family, miss her so incredibly already. And the only thing we can do, is ensure we continue to do her proud and make her ethos live on. Dare to Dream! 

I’m sure you’ll be aware that she had ovarian cancer, and whilst having this awful disease, she carried on with absolute grace and loveliness in her stride. After spending her final few weeks in the beautiful surroundings at Bassetlaw Hospice, she passed away peacefully.

There are two charities we would like to support in her memory. Firstly, of course, is Bassetlaw Hospice. The quality of care, and respect that both mum, and my brother and I received was exceptional – a world away from the hospital system. They made sure mum was comfortable in both the physical sense with medicines and nice bedding etc, and in the emotional sense with lots of tlc. The staff accommodated my brother and I spending every minute of every day there with our mum, and showed us such kindness, as well as letting us use their facilities. With the support of the Hospice team, we were able to focus solely on love and care for our mum, and not worry about where we would sleep, or how we would get food without leaving her side. The Hospice staff and medicines are funded by the NHS, however the building and contents are charity funded. A charity, that hopefully you will agree deserves support so that other families can continue to benefit for many years to come. 

The second charity, is Target Ovarian Cancer, whom mum and I have actively supported for the last two and a half years. This amazing charity funds medical research, campaigns for better legislation, regulation of treatment etc, and perhaps most critically, raises awareness in the general public and educates GPs. Ovarian cancer is so often, like with mum, discovered in an advanced stage, because the symptoms can be passed off or mistaken so easily - by GPs and by women themselves. In fact, over a quarter of women are diagnosed in A&E rather than by their GP! This isn't good enough. With our support the great work of this charity can continue. 

Please do give what you can.

Much, much love and thanks in advance.
Laura & Glynn xxxx
