My amazing wife KTatHome passed away last week after battling melanoma for seven years. She'd been on various treatments over the years but in the end simply ran out of options. We miss her terribly but  were really fortunate  to be able to be with her when she passed.

  • Hi

    I am so very sorry and sad to read this news.

    I was privileged to meet KTatHome on a couple of occasions and found her a really lovely, caring person who put me completely at my ease. 

    She was probably one of the first people I spoke to in the community when I was diagnosed with melanoma and I know she will have helped many more people over the years.

    She will be very sadly missed within the group and by me personally.

  • So very sad to hear this news Spaceman Chris. My love and condolences to you and your family.  I'd only really just got to know her through this forum and felt she was such a caring, warm person, never afraid to share herself if it would help others.  Her dying is the first person on here I felt I'd got to know. I'm so glad you were all there with her at the end.  Take care of each other xxx

  • Chris, my most heartfelt condolences and prayers for you and yours. Her courage and spirit to fight this disease for seven years was surely an awesome inspiration to you and your family and I know that you all must miss her terribly. God Bless. I am also a diagnosed melanoma survivor. Take care.

  • Hi ,

    I'm Ellen, a part of our Community team here at Macmillan.

    I am so sorry to hear Trina has passed away. I met her a few times at our volunteer meet ups and worked with her over the years she was a Champ on the site. 

    I remember when Pokemon Go came out and we talked a lot about it and how much she enjoyed it. She was showing me all of the Pokemon she had collected at one of our meet ups, and it was quite the impressive suite! 

    She was so kind, and did everything she could to help others and was a huge part of this Community. She'll be hugely missed and we are all thinking of you and your family. 

    Best wishes,

  • Hi
