Tribute to Helen Harold

This page is a tribute to Helen Harold, who was born in Ashington on October 20th 1955 and died on the 15th December 2017.

She is much loved and will always be remembered and missed by her loving children Stephanie, Dean and Rachael and her grandchildren.

Helen had a rare type of cancer called Mesotheliona, it’s so rare that there is no known cure for it, but there is chemotherapy to prolong life expectancy by a matter of years.

For those suffering from Mesotheliona there will never be a ‘ringing of that bell’ when the cancer treatment has ended.

My Mam Helen will be delighted I have set up this page in her memory and to help those suffering from this devastating cancer.

If we can help contribute into more research and more effective treatments, then those suffering might get that extra time with their loved ones.

What Is Mesothelioma?

“Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that begins to grow in the lining of certain organs. Most commonly it affects the lining of the lungs (called pleura). But it can also affect the lining of the abdomen or the lining of the heart.

The main symptoms of Mesothelioma are:

  • feeling out of breath
  • coughing
  • chest pain

Because Mesothelioma is so rare, there is still no cure, however the British Lung Foundation have set up a Mesothelioma research network to bring together researchers working on a cure for the cancer. Find out more here

Our Story

We lost our beautiful Mam to cancer in 2017. Her name was Helen.

She was diagnosed with a rare form of incurable cancer and was given three years to live. Neither of us could get our heads around it. She was still so young, it seemed so cruel and unfair.
