Dear all,

DG has asked me to write a short post for those who might be concerned.

Sadly, Dandy's Dad died early yesterday morning. As you know he wanted to fight this disease and trialled a number of treatments, some with great success. In time to come the learnings from these and other new treatments will become the foundation for groundbreaking advances.

DG and her Dad did not lose their battle. He lived his life to the full, took risks, and together they helped push the boundaries forward for all those who follow.

DG will write herself when she is ready but was keen to say that no-one should give up hope, there are exciting treatments out there and more and more attention and resources are being directed at beating this.

Beautifully said Marmalade.

DG, apart from what I've already said to you, how kind, caring and considerate are you, to not to want others to lose hope. You are one very special lady and a force to be reckoned with.

For now, please just concentrate on yourself and your family and getting through the coming days. Remember, I am only a train ride away. xx

I hope you draw comfort from the knowledge that you did absolutely everything possible to help your Dad this past year, with bells on! He must have been so proud of you.

Loads of love and may your dear Dad rest in peace.

I am so sorry for your loss, DG. Your dad was a real fighter and you were amazing at supporting him. You could not have done more to help him.
I thank your dad for taking part in that trial and helping bring the discovery of new treatments one step nearer for all other patients like me.
I thank you for thinking of other patients and carers during this difficult time.
My thoughts are with you and your family. Sending you love and big hugs.

Dear Leigha
I am so very sorry for your loss. I have sent you a personal message on Facebook. I agree with all previous comments. You fought for your father every step on the way and never gave up. He must have been very proud of you to have such a loving daughter.
Thinking of you and your family Ruth X
