Hi all, 

Marierose’s husband has shared with us the very sad news that she has passed away peacefully this morning. I know Marierose will be very much missed by all that have benefited from her supportive and caring nature.

A message from her husband, “I know that she thought highly of you all. Good luck to you all.”

Our thoughts are with all that are missing Marierose and our condolences go out to her friends and family.

Our helpline is here if you would like to talk or need support. You can reach our team of experts on 0808 800 6000. 

Best wishes, 


Marirose (community champion); I didn’t ‘know’ her as didn’t frequent the secondary boards she used but did read her posts at times… I am astonished to read that she had passed away. You would not have known she was so ill from her posts, she was giving advice to others, asking after people and full of positivity to such a short time ago. Truly rest in gentle peace Marirose, a brave and loved lady who I’m sure will be greatly missed by the secondary ladies. 

I was so sad to hear about Marirose. She was such a kind person and was so helpful and friendly to me, especially when we were both on Capecitabine. I will miss her very much. My thoughts are with her family xxx

Oh Mairierose,


What a shock! 


We will miss you. Rest in peace, lovely lady.  Thank you so much for all the companionship and support you gave us.xx


Bonita, please pass on to her family just how very much Marierose’s input/company was valued and

appreciated and send our love and best wishes to them at this time


thank you Moijanxx

Oh I am so sorry and sad to hear this. I know she last posted just after Christmas. She didn’t feel well, but many people didn’t and didn’t realise the potential consequences.
RIP Marirose and thankyou for all the advice/responses you gave to me for my late mum and the other ladies xxx

I’m so sad to hear that Marirose is no longer with us. I suspected things had maybe worsened because she didn’t reply to my recent PM but she’s regularly checked in on my when I haven’t been posting. She was such a lovely, kind, thoughful and helpful lady - particularly to those of us on the skin mets thread. We’ll all miss her terribly.


Bonita - Please do pass on my condolences to her husband and family. I know from her PMs how much she loved them and wanted to be able to spend more time with them.


Very sad to hear the news of Marirose, she will missed on the forum for her cheerful, caring nature. My thoughts are with her family, rest in peace lovely lady xx

Just want to add my condolences, so sad to hear about Marirose’s passing. She has been a great comfort and support to many of us on here and will be sadly missed. 

Bonita, please send her family my condolences and let them know we will all miss her. 

(Only just found this thread, I don’t tend to wander any further than the “bone mets” thread) so apologies for the late post. 

Hugs Janette xxxx
