Gemma Willis

17/11/1990 - 21/10/2021

Gemma, my angel

It is with a broken heart that we share with you that after 20 months of fighting cervical cancer Gemma passed away peacefully on Thursday 21st October 2021.

The cancer was spreading aggressively and had gone to her brain. Chemo was stopped as it wasn't working and we were told the NHS couldn't do anything else for her.

Private Immunotherapy was still an option but Gemma had been poorly and had to strengthen up again to face the treatment….unfortunately she couldn't find the strength to fight anymore.

We would like to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts who donated to help give Gemma the chance to have the Immunotherapy treatment.

We will be updating again in a few weeks when we have laid Gemma to rest about how we will use the funds raised in Gemma's memory.
