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 am so sorry to hear this and my thoughts go out to her family and friends. I visited her thread often in the hope of good news about a person I was inspired by in a daily basis.

Sending love to all who knew her.

I don't know what to say. I've read her threads, posted a bit. I was sure she would make it. Her poor babies and dh. I can't believe this.

Just so very, very sorry.

It's such an awful outcome for a woman who was so full of light.

May the universe protect Mr B and the crumbs in the days and weeks to come.

YesIDidMeanToBeSoRudeActually · 28/11/2014 20:30

Terribly sad news.

Delurking to send love to the Biscuits family.

Can we link to the donation page mentioned on previous page?

ChippingInAutumnLover · 28/11/2014 20:31

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 :(

It's so unfair. So so unfair.

ChippingInAutumnLover · 28/11/2014 20:32

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 :(

kissmyheathenass · 28/11/2014 20:33

Oh no. I am so sad to read Biscuits has lost her battle. She had so much to live for. Her dear family, what a terrible loss. Im sorry. Sad

Poor poor biscuits and her lovely family. How terribly terribly sad. I greatly admired her positive attitude and fighting spirit. The world is a poorer place tonight

riskit4abiskit · 28/11/2014 20:34

I am in floods of tears thinking of her baby without her mummy.

Rosa · 28/11/2014 20:34

How very very sad. She battled so well and she was supporting others whilst in treatment. Love and prayers to her family . I was another who felt she would make it. So very very sorry

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.
