Mary was sadly diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia whilst in Australia with her family. She battled in the way Mary battles for almost 4 months whilst managing to make the trip back to the UK to be in the great care of The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and constantly suggested she wanted to do anything to help the research of Leukaemia if she couldn't make it through the illness herself.

With her recent passing, her wish was that any money to be spent on flowers or other parting gifts instead was used to raise funds for research - any donations to Leukaemia UK will be greatly appreciated in place of these.
