Neither Words nor expression can explain the fear and anxieties our family has gone through over the past year and were it not for the strength and character of our Daughter Nicola I’m not sure we could have coped. Nicola's Cerebral Palsy and associated complex Disabilities have left her with the inability to express many things including pain and more often or not it is up to other's around to try and recognise symptoms on her behalf (can you imagine not being able to just reach for the bottle of pain killers when your suffering a headache) so when Nicola was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma we all suddenly realised how much pain and upset our daughter had been going through and that put a huge amount of guilt on all our heads however in trying to get to the diagnosis Nicola spent a year going back and forth to the local Doctors who also missed it!

Having now completed a huge treatment milestone (6 months of Chemotherapy) Nicola would like to Celebrate this 1st Milestone with all so a Fundraising night has been arranged of behalf of the Vale of Leven Hematology ward, they were exceptional at every level of Nicola's treatment and accommodated her ever whim (Thank you all). She would also like to raise funds on behalf of McMillians however the primary recipient will be the Vale.

A lot of people have help to keep Nicola safe throughout the periods when she had no immunity and could at a moments notice become critically ill however the care and attention to detail she was afforded by all of her carers has to be acknowledged. Finally we wish to thank everyone for massive effort being put in to arrange this Fundraiser especially Nicola’s carers so with so much effort going in can I ask those who see and read this to donate as little or as much as they can afford in recognition of the unique care that our Daughter has received.

We thank you all in advance and would love to see you on the evening of the 7th November at the Brock Bowling Club, Overburn Avenue, G82 2BU Dumbarton 

 The Party starts at 7pm..
