Memorial Page

This page is dedicated to those who have lost their lives through bladder cancer.

Death is nothing at all

I have only slipped away to the next room.

I am I and you are you.

Whatever we were to each other,

that, we still are.

Call me by my old familiar names.

Speak to me in the easy way

which you always used.

Put no difference into your tone.

Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorry.

Laugh as we always laughed,

at the little jokes we enjoyed together.

Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me.

Let my name be forever the household name

that it always was.

Let it be spoken without effect,

without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant.

It is the same as it ever was.

There is absolutely unbroken continuity.

Why should I be out of mind

because I am out of sight?

I am, but waiting for you,

for an interval.

Somewhere , very near,

just around the corner,

All is well…….

Canon Henry Scott- Holland 1910

In Remembrance of these Special People.

Sandra Robinson. “She suffered with water infections, blood in urine and urgency. But it wasn’t until September 2016 after being on 3 different lots of antibiotics, being fobbed off by the walk in centre, her own GP and A&E, she was in that much pain she threatened to take her own life because no one listened”

Joyce Tanner “It’s feels very upsetting to think my mum’s experience of severe pain and blood in her urine wasn’t taken more seriously at first, it wasn’t until after 3 courses of antibiotics and a blood transfusion that it was investigated properly.  It was a shock to us all at how quickly the cancer developed and within about 3 months she had died, it is a wonder if things could have been different had it been detected sooner before she became too ill and weak.”

 

Kevin Welburn, diagnosed with stage 4 metatastic bladder cancer, he was 66 when he died.  He was Traumatised, Downcast and inconceivable when diagnosed.

“Kevin was a hard working man who always saw the good in people. He is sorely missed by his wife, 3 children and 6 grandchildren, who he loved beyond measure 💔💔💔”
