The family of a man who died aged just 32 from a brain tumour are collecting money this weekend at Dobbie’s Garden Centre in Bearsden (August 13 and 14) to mark the 10th anniversary of his death.
Graham McKie was a healthy young man when he developed a sore head with sickness on December 26 in 2005.
He was initially diagnosed with a migraine, but with continued sickness and rapid weight loss he was admitted into the Western Infirmary for tests.
The following day he was transferred to The Southern General Hospital, which deals with brain conditions, and the doctors discovered that Graham needed major surgery to relieve pressure on his brain.
A biopsy also found that he was suffering from an inoperable and incurable Grade 4 Glioblastoma brain tumour. He passed away just seven months later.
His mum and dad Rachel and Donald from Milngavie are asking people who knew Graham to come along to Dobbie’s and help them to raise money in his memory for The Brain Tumour Charity.
Rachel said: “We are asking friends and family to support us and take time for reflection to remember Graham who is sorely missed from our everyday lives.
“We look forward to seeing everyone and for those who are unable to come but they’d still like to give some money they can visit our justgiving page.
“Your help, love and support to us as a family is very much appreciated.”
