Actually my friends dad has just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer so maybe she would be interested in this event.   I will mention it to her.  Actually having looked more closely at this event it looks like it is just for Brighty and my friend doesn't know her and nor do I personally but she was a member of GB and I have read and maybe contributed to her posts back in the day so we kind of have a connection through here.

The event, whilst put together to support Brighty & her daughter will be splitting the proceeds 3 ways, to the charity Pancreatic Cancer UK, to St Luke's Hospice Basildon which cares for people with cancer, and finally to Brighty herself.

If anyone wants to read more on Brighty's story, she's in the Mirror today: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/ive-six-months-find-new-9708874
There's still time to book tickets for the concert tomorrow, or to get raffle tickets or donate if you can't make it.

It was a fantastic day. Spritz and Concept worked their backsides off and raised a massive 16,000.

How is Brighty doing?

I've also been thinking about this since I saw the original post. I knew Brighty, lived 5 minutes down the road from her for some time, but I don't think we ever got as far as 'friends', so I've waited quietly to hear of any news. I wonder if any of her friends are still around on GB and feeling up to posting?

A quick update for those that are interested:

Brighty is still fighting hard for every day she can and her strength & positivity is totally awe inspiring to watch.
She's unwell quite a lot of the time now, but still takes every opportunity she can to go out and spend quality time making memories with her daughter and her parents. :)

Thank you jad.  :-* It's good to hear that Brighty is still able to spend time with her family. Every day is precious.

Thank you for the update. As I've said, I don't know Brighty personally, but was incredibly moved when I read about her illness and I have often wondered how she is doing.

Sending all the strength in the world, to Brighty, her daughter, her family and friends.

Thinking of you all.
