Avis Timmermans

8pm on 11th May 2020 changed our lives forever, the legend our mum Avis lost her life whilst under-going a procedure to ease her pain of Pancreatic Cancer.  Mum was an inspiration, initially diagnosed with bowel cancer in April 2018, after chemo, radiotherapy and an operation she beat it and my god did she beat it - you wouldn't have thought anything was wrong with her by just looking at her.  All was good, then in September 2018 they said they found a small less than 2cm "something" on her pancreas, that "something" eventually turned out to be cancer, a small tumour close to a main vein that needed to be even smaller to reduce any risk, unfortunately that didn't happen and it grew.  Mum was nothing but brave and positive throughout her treatment and again to look at her you wouldn't think she was very ill.  Our mum was as most would say unique, one in a zillion and simply the best.. our mum truly was and is sorely missed.  If we can help in anyway to save other families going through such trauma and heartache, lets try it.  Pancreatic cancer as we all know is the silent killer, something we must try and change and raise what we can for research for earlier detection and hopefully save lives.
