“The news has just been devastating. We’ve been together since school days, married more than 30 years. I’ve cried many times as we have been together since we were young teens. She is the love of my life and I just don’t know what I’m going to do,” said the 49-year-old husband. He added, “We have seven kids, four are grown up, but we have little girls aged 8, 10 and 13 – it’s going to be devastating for them and I really don’t know what to do.”

He started a GoFund Me page to make their Christmas a reality. “I’m trying my best to save what pennies I have to give Helen and our little girls a happy Christmas one more time with their mummy. I want them to at least smile on the special day because at the moment they cry every day and it’s heartbreaking,” said Stephen. He is even raising money for his wife’s funeral. “Please help! Helen’s time is running out, it’s now weeks, let me give her the send-off she deserves to ease the pressure of the kids. Helen is stressed, she wants to go in peace without worrying, anything is gratefully appreciated,” wrote Stephen on the page. He said that his brave wife had even decided on her funeral arrangements.
His plea for help was heard by many who generously contributed to the family in need. The devoted husband thanked the public for their response.
While the financial preparations of her last days are going on, the family has not completely given up hope. Helen is set to start her chemotherapy to buy more time despite knowing that the cancer will eventua. Though the predicted future of Helen’s health may be heart-wrenching, the family hopes to make the most of her last days. They have also organized a party to celebrate her life at Tranmere Rovers Prenton Park stadium on November 1.
