A SOLIHULL father who lost his wife to lung cancer has been chosen to support a charity close to his heart.

A SOLIHULL father who lost his wife to lung cancer has been chosen to support a charity close to his heart.

Celebrate A Life at Springtime is organised by the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, which gives people the opportunity to remember those who are loved and missed by dedicating a ribbon of remembrance in their name.

David Livingstone got involved with the charity, following the loss of his wife, Lynne to lung cancer in 2012 and along with his family and friends has raised over £5,000 for the foundation.

“Last year I lost my wife to lung cancer. She was only 62-years-old. We had been married for 27 years. I would give everything to have her back. She loved her family, life and had so much to live for.

“Our four sons Jon, Toney, Mark and David junior and I decided that we had to do something positive, which is why we got involved with Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

“This year we are supporting the Celebrate A Life at Springtime appeal, giving us the opportunity to remember Lynne in a positive way and make a difference at the same time.

“Lung cancer is a horrendous disease. It doesn’t discriminate and can hit anyone at any time. It is only when it hits somebody who you love that you realise how important the work of this charity is.”

Each person who makes a donation will be given a remembrance ribbon as a keepsake to remember your loved one. To read more about Celebrate A Life or to make a donation to the appeal, visit www.roycastle.org/celebratealife or call Alan French on 0333 323 7200 ext 9119
