In memory of Julie McCarthy

1959 - 2007

So far we have raised


This fund is in memory of a beautiful, caring and loving woman and mother who sadly passed away on 27th December 2007 just before her 49th birthday. Julie was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997 and bravely endured 11 years of various treatments before finally losing her battle to this terrible disease. She is greatly missed by her family and friends.

To honour her memory this fund is to raise money for the charity she supported. As a nurse, midwife and wonderful mother to her children, Julie's fund is to help others through supporting breakthrough's fight against breast cancer.

On 4th October 2013 Julie’s mother Patricia Colwell passed away after a short illness. Pat was much loved and is greatly missed by her family and friends. It is fitting now they are together that the tribute fund is also shared.

Thank you to all those who have raised money for the fund.

10 years and we still miss her every day! Her memory lives on in her wonderful son, daughters and grandchildren. She would be so proud of them all, just as they are of her.
