“Betty, my mother, was taken from us on 17th September 2007, after being diagnosed with lung cancer exactly three months earlier. I will never forget how I felt losing my mother.

Her absence left me devastated, totally, and I thought my life ended with hers. I finally learned that being able to raise money for Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation in mum’s name rewarded not only a valid cause but the memory of mum, as she was all about what she could do for others, the most selfless person I know.

Early diagnosis is so very important – hopefully to give loved ones facing this disease even an extra hour, day or month together, which is so very important.”
