Sharing the memory of Janet Dolan

Sharing the memory of Janet Dolan


Mon 09 April

Sally Duke, sister to the late Janet Dolan shares her wonderful memories of her sister and thanks to those who kindly donated to BTRS in Janet’s memory.
This article is in memory of my sister Janet Dolan who passed in February after a long battle with a brain tumour. Family and friends donated £2,146.66 to BTRS in her memory. We would like to thank you for your kindness.
 
Janet was a loving sister to me, my best friend.
 
Janet was a realist and a very courageous person. She wrote and worked through a bucket list of things she wanted to do. She learnt how to sail, she wrote a book, she raised money for BTRS including the charity calendar where she looked fabulous. She attended her daughter's wedding and met her grandson Leo. Janet was also able to meet her other grandson Oli.

She also wrote songs.
 
I would like to share an extract from a song called 'I'm really trying. This can be difficult to read for those that are living with a brain tumour but I hope these words ring true.

The blues have left me today
I am leaving a song for you to play
Hear the lyrics from my pen
My song let's me live on and on
 
I'm really trying
It's not happening to me
It's a bad dream
Sometimes I know I am lying
But I am really trying.......
 
Janet and all people with a brain tumour are really trying and have so much courage.
 
The words in Janet’s song sum up my brave sister. Please give generously to BTRS so that they can continue to fund brain tumour research in Yorkshire while offering support to patients and their families affected by a brain tumour.
