Our Beautiful Annie (Sixpen)

Dear All

It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that Annie passed away yesterday evening at home with Wes and Kyran.

We have lost a most beautiful, generous, caring, loving and witty young lady, who had so much to live for with an adorable husband Wes and gorgeous little son Kyran. Her spirit will live on in Kyran, and he already has her gorgeous grin and her wicked sense of humour and devilment.

Annie, will miss you so much more than anyone can ever know or probably understand. You were my rock, my best friend and without you my life will never quite be the same. You have taken a piece of my heart with you.

Wes, if you ever do read this, you are an amazing man, an inspiration to others and the love that you and Annie had will never leave you. I love you all so much and the pain i feel for you is overwhelming. Take good care Wes.

Annie, you are now at peace which we have to be thankful for, but we will all miss you so much.

Goodnight my darling friend and thank you so much for your friendship and support over the last year.

Lots of love and cuddles to you wherever you may be and to Wes, Kyran and all your family. You are one special lady.


I am so very sorry to read this news. I remember all of Annie’s posts, right from being diagnosed when she had a new-born to rejoice in and care for. We spoke often on live chat and she was always funny and upbeat. My sincere condolences to Wes and Kyran, her family, and cyber friends here.

Rest in Peace.


My heart goes out to Wes and Annies young family. Can’t believe that another young life has been taken far too soon. We truly understand how you feel if you read this Wes as we lost our gorgoeus Lisa in June aged 34 in almost the same way and with the suddeness too. Such a cruel disease. No one can offer you any solice right now. The days feel very dark for you but you will be busy and somehow you get through it even though you don’t know how you will. Simon says that he doesn’t know even now how he is coping but he does and says that a small part of him still can’t accept that he has lost his beautiful Lisa with the happy smiling face even at teh end … sounds like Annie doesn’t she? Maybe thats how he keeps sane he says.
You will get lots of lovely messages on this site Wes and they will help a lot. You will know that they are heartfelt and from people who really understand. I have kept all of the ones that I had at the time.
My thoughts will be with you everyday. Maybe Annie is with my Lisa now, I hope so as they will have a lot to share.
Keep talking about her … believe me it helps. Sometime read the poem " The Elephant in the Room". I love that poem.
Dear Annie, like Lisa, you are so loved as this posting will show when all the comments come in.
Lots of love Sue x

I’m really sorry to read that Annie has died.

Thoughts and condolences to Wes and Kyran and Annie’s freinds and family.

very best wishes


What a sad, sad day. I am so sorry to hear that Annie has died. I read some of her posts during the year that I have been posting on here and she truly did sound a lovely lady even though I didn’t know her.
My thoughts are with her family and friends.

I am so saddened to read that another young life has been stolen by this awful disease.
I did not know Annie but my hearfelt thoughts go out to her family.

Sleep peacefully

Terrible news. My thoughts are with her family and Dawn.

I am so sorry to hear this sad news. I came across Anne on the secondary chats a few times earlier in the year and her humour and positivity shone through her comments and posts. My heart goes out to her family and friends and especially to Wes and to Kyran. That was a lovely tribute to her,Dawn. Am thinking of you too at this difficult time.

Am so very saddened to hear this news.

I am lost for words but wanted to post - may Anne rest peacefully and thinking of Wes and Kyran and all your family and friends, as are many many others.


I can’t believe this news it seems like only yesterday that Anne was talking to us on live chat with her usual cheerfulness. she always had something funny to say.
I am so so sorry. All my love goes to her family


Oh dear, I am so sorry to hear this news.
Thinking of Wes and Kyran, even though I don’t know you and the rest of Annie’s family and friends.
Miserable illness

words escape me, my love and condolences to Annes husband and little one, she will be so sadly missed.

I think of her every time I have chemo, as the scalp cooling machines in my hosp were donated by Anne, then we met here and I was able to thank her myself for her wonderful gift that has made my journey easier to bear.


Wes … you know how I feel and how much our friendship meant to us both. We shared laughter and tears, compared aches, pains and fears. I cannot believe that it is only two and a half weeks ago that Anne was feeling sick and I was trying to make sure she had asked for enough anti sickness meds to get her through radiotherapy. Little did we know what lie ahead. It is beyond belief how quickly this has all happened and that she has now died.

I will miss Anne more than words can express and keep re reading our recent texts over and over and over as we shared so much. My life will not be the same without her but has been made so much richer for having known her.

Love to you and Kyran as always,

Angee & Andy x x x

I will miss Annie so much. She was a source of inspiration and support to me through secondary chat
I shall miss her wise words. She always helped me through and helped me see sense when I was down and depressed
Love to Wes and Kyran


I cannot continue posting today and passing this thread again without coming on to express my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of Annie. I didn’t know her but as we all travel this journey I cannot let the loss of a fellow BC patient to pass by without me taking a moment to pause for the tragic loss of someone who obviously touched so many. My love to her family at this time, O.

I too did not know Annie, but the lovely thoughts and comments already posted on here show what a wonderful woman she was and how much she was loved and cared about.
My sincere condolences to her family.


I too need to add my sorrow to this thread.

I too want just to say how dreadfully sorry I am to hear this news. My thoughts are with Annie’s husband and son and hope that they can derive some comfort from the tributes paid to her from those who knew her well and who had been supported by her. It just seems so sudden
