The family remained devastated after the death of the mother three months after the "sudden diagnosis"
Jenny Garner, 62, gradeIV glioblastoma– most common high-grade primary brain tumor – February 23, 2022.Doctortold her family that the disease was incurable, butreports daily that she could focus on shrinking her tumor.
Jenny, who lived in Warrington, was given a life expectancy of 9-12 months. But less than three months later, she died on May 18.
Her son, Paul Garner, is afraid of heights, but to help other families in the same situationto raise money for a brain tumor charityIn August, we will complete the charity skydiving. Paul said: "It was a huge shock because it took less than three months from diagnosis to death.
" They looked back and said that there was basically nothing we could do. Of course. It's the hardest thing because at first I look to hope and think there must be something. It was difficult because she was 62 and was very unexpected.
"The prognosis that she could only live for 9-12 months was obviously very hard to hear. In the meantime, I can still do a lot, but it gets worse every time I visit the hospital. "
Paul, 26, said his mother was family-friendly and liked nothing but spending time with his grandchildren James (8) and Harry (1). Jenny worked for 30 years at Barclays Bank in Wavertree and was loved by many, including her husband John and her two other sons, Michael and Stephen.
Jennie was born in the city center of Liverpool. She lived in Old Swan and Highton before moving to Warrington 15 years ago.
Paul, who works in the sales of a software company, said: "My mother was a very special woman. She was a very kind, generous and affectionate person. She was very selfless in everything she did and put everyone else in front of her.
"She had a smile that brightened every room. As a family, she was very fortunate to have her in our lives and she I'll miss you forever. "
Jenny's illness wasn't the first time Paul was personally affected by glioma. In 2019, his friends Mike and Joan lost his son Jacob to the same tumor. Skydiving is also done in memory of Jacob.
Paul completes a tandem skydiving at the Black Knights Parachute Center in Lancaster on August 26, despite fear of height. He opened a fundraising page this week and has already exceeded his goal of £ 1,000.
He states: "I just wanted to do something challenging, but I'm scared of my height. It should be fun, but I'm definitely nervous that day. What I can do in her memory is great.
"I don't want others to experience what my family has experienced, so I'm doing my best to raise money for my research. It seems so crazy and basically nothing I can do. No. "
Glioblastoma (a brain tumor in which Jenny was diagnosed) is growing rapidly, is likely to spread, and may recur after it first appears to disappear. Paul said his 15-year study hadn't made much progress, but public awareness increased after Tom Parker died of the disease on March 30, 2022.
