With Your Help We Can Succeed

My Story

When asked to contribute to this site I felt honoured but grateful to be able to put down in words  how Tulips have helped us as a family.

Little did we know that when granddaughter Millie did a sponsored swim for Tulips Christmas 2018, some six weeks later we would be knocking on their door for support.


A wonderful  peep talk given to my husband by Raziye set us on the road for treatment, this was followed by one to my daughter when we went, a few weeks later for a wig.

Throughout my treatment  Tulips have made sure my drugs were collected and delivered to the hospital,  meaning we did not have to rush around getting them ourselves, reassured us when we had wobbles, of which there were several, and now treatment is completed they are still there for us.

This is why we, as a family, of three generations, are willing to help support Tulips when ever we can.

Yes it was me, the bald headed model raising sponsorship  at that HOT fashion show, again supported by Millie.


It was my husband, who walked with the blister sisters at the start of their walk, but it was incredible that one year later we, all three generations, took to the sea for the New Year's Eve swim!!!  COLD!!!!

So we all say "thanks Tulips" from the bottom of our hearts.

How Did Tulips Help Me?

TULIPS helped me by just being there, knowing there was somewhere I could go for advice on doctors, medication, answering my questions, accompanying me on appointments and giving the support that as a cancer patient we need, by people who understand the impact cancer has on our families lives as well as our own.


Thank you Tulips for your continued support
