Carolyn Gammon and her family set up ‘Curly Car’s Cancer Fund’ in 2016 to raise funds for the life-extending drugs she needed following a secondary breast cancer diagnosis during pregnancy. For 4 years Car led a full and relatively ‘normal’ life where she felt fit and well, got married in a festival wedding, got to see her children settled in full time school and made countless amazing memories (all whilst coordinating a huge fundraising effort which raised almost £200,000).
In September of 2017, Carolyn, her husband Gos and their two children Rudy and Mira benefitted from a lovely break in Swanage, Weymouth. This created a lovely opportunity to make happy memories and Carolyn was very grateful for the generosity of the property owner in donating the holiday to ‘Something To Look Forward To’, and in turn to yourselves for selecting her as the beneficiary.
On September 25th 2020 Carolyn died, having reminded us several times of her very clear instructions regarding the use of the fund given that she had not needed to use it all for its intended purpose.
‘Something To Look Forward To’ helped Carolyn throughout her diagnosis and treatments, so we are very pleased to make a £5,000 donation in Carolyn’s memory, so that the funds originally raised for her treatment can go on to progress the fight against cancer as well as providing support to cancer sufferers and their families. Carolyn hoped that this donation would allow other families to also make happy memories in the future.
