FUNDRAISING is taking place in memory of a mum whose life was said to be prolonged, thanks to cannabis oil.

Vanessa Campion, of Kinmel Bay, died on August 4. She was a wife to Paul, a mum, and a grandmother; thanks to the medical cannabis, friends say she was able to meet her grandchild called Oliver. She also found out her second grandchild was a girl before she died and renewed her vows with her husband.

Vanessa died after a long battle with cancer.

Daughter Georgina Cahill, 21, will be having her head shaved

On October 13, a coffee morning with a difference is taking place at Psycho Tattoo Studio. Individuals, who would like a memorial tattoo in memory of anyone or in memory of Paul’s wife, are welcome to attend. All money raised will be going to Glan Clwyd Hospital.

There will also be cakes and hot drinks for a small donation.

On top of this, Vanessa’s daughter Georgina Cahill, 21, will be having her head shaved.

Janine Foden, who is helping with the fundraising, raffle prizes and more alongside friends Beccy and Jeannette, said: “There will be lots of posh cup cakes as there will be hot drinks and cakes. Georgina is also having all her beautiful long hair shaved off to raise more funds for the cancer unit and there will be sponsor forms in the tattoo shop.

Paul and Vanessa. The couple were able to renew their vows

“Vanessa did a lot of charity work with Macmillan when she worked for Palins Holiday Park in Towyn. She also did coffee mornings to raise money.

“Her husband Paul said she defied all the odds due to cannabis oil. It prolonged her life and let her renew her vows and find out the sex of Georgina’s second baby. The family are keen to raise awareness.”

Vanessa discovered she had a tumour on her small bowel. A further scan showed it had spread to the rest of her body.

Janine added: “Paul is keen to get across that the cannabis oil helped her live and see a lot more that she would have done without it."

In October 2018, Janine had her head shaved as she fundraised with friends to help Sheila Scott; the mum from Kinmel Bay died on November 5 after she was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.

Janine said: "When I had my head shaved, it was an exhilarating feeling. It is so special for Georgina to do this for her mum. All the money is going to such a good cause.

"It is essentially a thank you to those who looked after her mum."

Sponsor forms are also in Tanz 'n' Hair in Kinmel Bay.

Two hampers at tattoo shop are also set to be raffled at the event.
