How my painful loss inspired me to help other parents and grandparents

My name is Lindsey,  I lost my 64 year old mother to cancer.

On 28th September 2016, I received the worst news completely out of the blue.

My mother, Madeline or ‘Maddie’ as she loved to be known, was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer and given 2 weeks to live.

In the following weeks, she endured painful treatments and chemotherapy.
All the while, Mum set out to ensure everything was "in order".

We planned special family times and supported her quest to tick off important bucket list items. She reassured me, I need not worry because she was sorting everything out. Respecting her wishes, I gave Pops and her space to do this.

Early in December, Mum made the heartbreaking decision to end her ‘life extending’ treatment.

“If this is as good as it gets, it’s not good enough for me”, she said.

Broken, I accepted her wishes, and we continued ticking off that bucket list.

On 25th February 2017, 5 months after diagnosis, my beautiful mother passed away.

However, not everything was in order.  Mum simply ran out of time and it left us with so many unanswered questions about her life, her digital footprint, her funeral wishes and so much more.

From this pain and grief, came the inspiration and purpose for TellThem4Me® to help others ‘get things in order’. Above all, it provides the peace of mind that I wished I had and what I am now gifting to my loved ones.
