    Dear All,

    I'm starting a new thread so these details don't get lost.

    Eddie's wife Smitta says they are sorting out funeral arrangements today and it's likely to be sometime the week after next. I'll update this when I get the date.

    She also said the family is planning to set up a Just Giving page towards Melanoma UK, who gave him help and advice in his last couple of weeks, so maybe that should be where we all contribute once it's set up.

    She also said they are overwhelmed with the number of messages and support on the forum - her son's been looking at them and she will when she can.

    Thank you for the link... I will donate when the fund is set up. I share the thoughts that contributing towards maybe one day ridding us all of these horrible diseases is so important.

    That sounds like a very sensible option, I didn't want to bother Smitta for a few days thanks for making contact.

    You're absolutely right Lenny - I just wanted her to know how much people were concerned and also to try and make sure everyone's desire to contribute went the right way.

    It's very tricky to get the right balance. ..........

    Yes - good.

    Sorry - but can I just tell anyone who might be interested that Melanoma and breast cancer are definitely connected. I read something the other day which said that when there's a 'genetic' (BRAC) element to the breast (or indeed ovarian cancer) then there's a link - but my sister had breast cancer - with no known 'genetic' element which was successfully treated and subsequently had a melanoma which they removed. She was told then of the link - but she lived in Australia not here and they see a lot more melanoma generally there anyway for obvious reasons and therefore generally seem to know a lot more about it.

    Despite being signed off 'recovered' from both - some years later another lump appeared and metastasis was by that time rife throughout. She died 12 months ago in a terrible state since although hospice space was pre-arranged and so was everything else subsequent to that, whilst she could still choose - very practical my sis - she refused point blank to go so it wasn't until she had lost it completely my BiL could get her there.

    Yes it's horrible and we don't really want to even think about it - but I'm determined to tell as many people as I can to just be warned, whether they want to know or not.

    I don't know what links exist for men, sorry. But you can bet your sweet bippy they will be there.

    RIP Eddie, we met you and your lovely wife last year in Spain, our sincere condolences to the family. Gone to the big Motorhome in the sky but never forgotten. Another life taken to soon.

    Thank you for the update, it will be nice to be able to donate in memory of Eddie, it made me appreciate how powerful the forum actually is, and how close we feel to people we have never met. I am pleased Eddies son has been on the forum and read how well thought of his dad is, and I hope one day his wife is strong enough to read his posts and find some comfort there.

    RIP Eddie

    I had never met Eddie, only spoke via pm messages and found him to be a real nice helpfull genuine guy, it seems really strange not having him here - I never met him, never knew him yet its strange to say i miss him... Personally i am still a little numb about his passing...RIP The Judge !

    I think Eddie said his didn't have the BRAC element to it, so he was unable to have a specific treatment.
