My mum was recently diagnosed with CUP, I had never heard of it before..within less than two weeks of being diagnosed she had passed away leaving a loving husband, two daughters and two beautiful grand children. She was only 65 years old – such a waste!
We are in the midst of arranging the funeral and one of the things that we would really like to do is give everyone a pin badge to help raise awareness – like the ones that available for breast cancer but specific to CUP. Whilst I can’t bring mum back I know that she would like to think her death wasn’t in vain and so if I can in any way help to raise awareness of this cruel disease then I will. Therefore I was wondering what people thought about having a pin badge for CUP perhaps linked in with a ribbon and a cup together. My mum did love a cup of tea!
I would be really keen to hear your views and to see if others are thinking along the same lines.
