A Collier Row widower has been invited to speak about his wife’s diagnosis of pancreatic cancer at the House of Commons by Pancreatic Cancer UK.
David Alabaster, 55, Hill Rise Road has raised a further £113 with his stall at Romford Market on Friday, November 30 on top of the £690 he has already raised for Pancreatic Cancer UK.
On Sunday, October 21, David’s wife Wendy, died from pancreatic cancer.
He told the Recorder: “We’ve been together for just over 10 years and we never had a cross word between us. She was loved by everybody.
“Wendy loved upcycling, like me. When we went out she would notice something in the street and the next thing I knew I was loading it in the car.
“Wendy will always be loved and missed by everyone who knew her.”
Pancreatic Cancer UK has invited David to talk about his wife’s journey in the House of Commons next week.
