Read our guest blog from Penny Brohn UK:
Professional carpet cleaner, Lee Moore is launching a charitable Christmas Clean Campaign to remember his mum Susan who passed away from cancer.
Susan, 66, of Bristol, was diagnosed with breast, lung and bone cancer in November 2016.
She underwent gruelling chemo but, to her family and friends’ shock, died on April 29 – three weeks after telling them it failed.
Susan benefited from Penny Brohn UK’s free services and her husband Colin, 71, still benefits from our groups and community choir.
Their son Lee, who owns Bristol-based carpet cleaning company LDM Services, is launching a Christmas Clean to thank us for our “brilliant support during the devastating time”.
Lee, 48, of Bristol, said: “We were all so shocked – mum showed symptoms, but it was all so fast.
“We were devastated when she said chemo had failed and mum was gone very quickly afterwards.
“She always spoke highly of Penny Brohn’s support and dad still uses their free services, enjoying being with people going through similar circumstances.
“I wanted to do something to thank them for everything they’ve done – mum truly enjoyed her time there.”
Lee will clean two domestic rooms, stairs, landing and hallway for £65, with 20 per cent going to us if BS postcode residents quote “Penny Brohn”.
Commercial properties are by quotation and the campaign runs until January 31.
Penny Brohn head of partnership fundraising Samantha Young added:
“We are incredibly grateful to Lee for launching this campaign for us to remember Susan.
“We rely on kind people like Lee to continue our work to reach families facing cancer, before, during and after treatment, so hope people take him up on his offer.”
