A thread in memory of biscuitsandbandages who tragically lost her battle with leukaemia on Thursday 27th November

Biscuits gathered so many supporters and followers as she went through the trauma of diagnosis and bravely endured attempts at a cure. Her Mumsnet army can post their condolences here. It may serve as a comfort to her family to know how much she was admired and loved.

On Biscuits' last thread, Kundry kindly posted a link to a donation page set up in her memory, for those who wish to respect her request to donate to multiple causes close to her heart, rather than send flowers. Oxfam (training doctors and midwives in the 3rd World), a book reading prize for the school her DSs attend, and Leukemia and Lymphoma research to help banish this disease from future generations. The link is:here

RIP Biscuits thanks

I can't believe it - I really thought our Biscuits was going to be OK. Her poor poor DH and babies - her little crumbs. I just can't take it in sad

It's so unfair. So so unfair.

ChippingInAutumnLover Fri 28-Nov-14 20:32:50

How can it be? She was just so lovely, so giving, so kind to others going through similar things. She has small children who need her. It's just not fair sad

Her poor babies. I'm heartbroken at this news. She was a courageous soul and I was willing her on from the other side of the computer screen.

Rest in peace biscuits.
