The public are rallying round to support Grace Teare, a 26-year-old undergoing treatment for cervical cancer, and her family.
Grace, who lives in Douglas with her partner Damon Kilsby and their 22-month-old son Robbie was diagnosed in June.
She was told her 10cm tumour was inoperable and the cancer was third stage as it’s affecting other organs.
Grace is currently spending each week at Clatterbridge Hospital on The Wirral having chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and then coming back to the island at the weekend.
She launched an online appeal at www.letscrowdit.com to raise £3,000 for Damon and Robbie to be at her side while she was treated.
So far, the total raised stands at £1,475.
And now Remember Me, a charity launched by Lesley Turnbull to grant wishes for the children of sick or terminally ill parents has stepped in.
Lesley said the charity has granted Robbie’s wish and pledged to cover the travel and accommodation costs for Damon and Robbie while visiting Grace in the UK.
And the support doesn’t stop there.
David ‘Scotty’ Williams has organised the first of a number of fundraisers in Grace’s name, with the money going to Remember Me to help Grace’s family and others who need support.
The ‘GT 3000’ ride out of the TT Course for motorbikes, cars, scooters, trikes or any other method of transport takes place tomorrow (Sunday).
Participants should meet in the pit lane at the Grandstand, in Glencrutchery Road, Douglas, from midday to 12.30pm for a 1pm start. There is a suggested donation of £3.
There will also be a raffle, with prizes from local companies including Jaks, Elite Fitness, Utopia and Riverside Ceramics.
