Burnham-On-Sea fundraiser is set to have his hair shaved off to
raise money for a charity that has been supporting his mother
as she battles cancer.
Bullimore will be holding the fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer
Support on Friday 8th April from 8pm at Pawlett Legion Social
His mother Linda, who is a well-known resident about Burnham,
has been diagnosed with four cancerous tumours - two in the brain
and two in a lung.
is the most inspiring woman I have ever met," says David.
"The best thing about my mom is that she loves everyone and
treats them all equally. She loves helping out and supporting
anything she can and she is there for everyone with the same effort."
who has met my mom has always been fond of her - please help me
support her and show her the love that she has relentlessly shown
to all of us in one way or another. Please help us raise some
money and support a great cause, helping thousands of people each
day. It can be as little as £1 or as big as £100."
says: "I will only have had two chemo sessions by the time
David has the big shave - but of course I have already been privileged
to have been given a 1% patient opportunity (in the country) of
Gamma Knife radiation treatment on the tumours on my brain."
the time of diagnosis there were two tumours, at the time of treatment
there were three and we are not sure whether the treatment has
been a total success yet but a scan in May will reveal those results
- I am of course terminal."
treatment I am receiving is in order to prolong my existence for
as long as I need and can handle. My prognosis was 6-9 months,
I have every intention of punching through that time limit as
I want to see this year's Carnival, my grandson's first real Christmas,
and various other passionate projects I feel very strongly about."
MacMillan people have been absolutely amazing, as have the Uphill
Weston Hospice, the NHS a fantastic service at Weston General;
Bristol Oncology and even the surgery in Love Lane."
thanks to these organisations seems little in response to the
support they give patients and I hope to be able to do more for
them before my time is up."
