Thank you for taking time to read my Petition! If you had a life shortening illness you want the best quality of life for the years, months, weeks or even days that you have left. I’m Hannah and I feel very strongly that people should be given this opportunity. This is what Rowcroft Hospice do! I don’t know whether you have come across Rowcroft before but a most people don’t know about the wonderful work that the volunteers do there to help people like Rebecca. After my petition I hope that you will understand a bit more about the work that is done for more than 1800 people and their families a year. After I also hope will consider donating to Rowcroft Hospice.
Here is a brief summary of Rebecca’s mum’s story. On February 11th Rebecca’s mum was taken to hospital with breathing difficulties. She had to complete an intense course of radiotherapy to then be diagnosed with thyroid cancer. The next day she discovered that her quite aggressive cancer had spread. She asked the consultant if they would be able to operate while hoping for a good response. But sadly there was nothing that could be done. Shockingly Rebecca’s mum was told the day after, that there were tumours in her lungs and chest. The cancer was spreading fast. All she wanted to do was spend as much happy time with her family as possible. Luckily Rebecca’s mum managed to become a patient at Rowcroft Hospice and was looked after with extreme care and love. The volunteers there made sure she was always happy and comfortable. She was allowed to see her family as much as she wished. Being able to do this gave her hope. She was very cheerful for every minute of her remaining time. This is a piece that her Rebecca wrote. ‘She swam 2 weeks before she died, she went to ballet just over a week before she died, she climbed the stairs the week before she died, she smiled the day she died. She lived till she couldn’t live anymore!’
Rowcroft Hospice made Rebecca’s mum’s life worth living. Even if it is only a small donation every penny counts and adds up. Your donations would buy food, clothes, books and newspapers, new bedding, new plates and cutlery, resources and equipment (eg. for hairdressing and cooking), and for plants in the gardens. Rowcroft need you help from donations, going to charity events and sponsering other people to do amazing things like the Sponsored Sleep Walk.
