Vicki’s Special Day story
Soon after Vicki was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, her partner proposed. But due to her ongoing treatments they never got the chance to celebrate their engagement. So for Vicki’s Special Day, Willow arranged for them both to visit London, eat at Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant and make everlasting memories together.
We’d not had the chance to celebrate our engagement, so we were really looking forward to an evening out in London. Having the Special Day to look forward to got me through most of my treatment and it was a way of giving ourselves a milestone to get to. It was a really lovely way to celebrate putting the cancer behind us and spending time together without the focus being on hospitals, doctors and medications.
It made such a difference having that time together, making memories that we’ll never forget.Vicki
We spent the weekend together just having fun, being tourists. We visited the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and went on both the Big Bus and Thames Boat Tours.
We had such a lovely time; we were looked after really well and I felt so spoilt. It made such a difference having that time together, making memories that we’ll never forget.
