Topic: Can it be ten years ....
Ten years ago today Alan died from cholangiocarcinoma. It's really hard to believe that so much time has passed - and my heart still aches and I have wept so many tears today for what Alan had to endure, what he lost, what I lost, the future together that we lost, and what our son has lost.
I know that what I feel is felt by everyone whose life has been touched by this disease, and it is what drives me forward with AMMF (The Alan Morement Memorial Fund) here in the UK - and I'm sure it's what drives everyone involved with this wonderful foundation, too.
Sadly, with an enormous increase in the incidence of this disease, research is as badly needed now as it was when Alan was diagnosed. BUT progress is being made - wonderfully dedicated researchers are working to find the answers, and here in the UK AMMF remains committed to supporting them in whatever way we can.
Climbing the mountain and looking for the miracle!
