Re: Nicky08

So sorry to read about Nicky - she was an amazing supportive member of the forum who will be very much missed .x


Re: Nicky08

I cry every time I pop on here and realise she's gone but also know she would want us to celebrate her life too. 

She was a buddy from when we first met in 2008 when we were all doing chemo, she was our expert having gone through it previously, we ended up having to move forum's from undergoing treatment as we moved on but I often forgot our chemo thread was read by many others looking for our support and must of though lt was bonkers, with the nicknames for wigs, talk of dog hair to cover bald patches and all our mishaps but she helped so many and throughout this fight she was always positive looking for her next options to fight to stay with her loved ones.

She loved talking about her family and I loved hearing about all her walks and many trips away, she will be a major miss for us and everyone thst knew her and a true inspiration xx rest easy buddy xx

Message from the family -

"Nicky specifically requested in her journals to ‘Celebrate my life, please’. We would have hoped to have been able to do this with you all in person but unfortunately that is not the case, for the time being. Due to the current restrictions, we are extremely limited in numbers for physical attendance to the funeral service, however we are able to have a live webcast of the service which will also be available for the following 28 days, should you wish to ‘join us’ in remembering and celebrating Nicky’s life. The service will be webcast from 11.am on Tuesday 29th December 2020. 

Once restrictions allow us to, we certainly hope to be able to bring everyone together in memory and celebration of Nicky, next year.

Please use the following link https://www.obitus.com/  to access the live webcast of the service. For more information or to make any charitable donations, as Nicky requested, to the wonderful St. Michael’s Hospice, please use this link: https://www.dignityfunerals.co.uk/funeral-notices/07-12-2020-nicola-neame/


Re: Nicky08

Thank you Helen,

she was my buddy too. We found each other and our group formed in 2008 when we all had chemo together. Then we moved across to another section when we all finished chemo. We had such fun laughing about chemo. I remember she road tested how fast you could drive with the car top down and keep your wig on. She came to my house in Essex and I managed to drive to meet her too at her old home. She must have gone downhill fast as we spoke on here often. Another of our special group gone 😞

I am so sad as she put up a gallant battle and deserved to continue to battle on.

Thank you so much for contacting us. Please tell her husband I will be on her mobile as either Lily or Val. My condolences to him and her 2 lovely girls and little chap xx

Re: Nicky08

Dear Helen

I am so sad to read this, but thank you for letting me know.   We will all be shocked in Buddies, as we've been chatting for so long and even though I've never met the ladies (Nearly met Nicky once) I feel that we all knew each other so well.

Please pass on my condolences to Nicky's husband and daughters, and all her friends.  This seemed to happen so quickly.

Take care

❤️Nicky08❤️ your beautiful kindness will always shine eternally, rest in peace ❤️💕💕Shi xx



It is with real sadness that I tell you that our lovely Nicky passed away on 7th December. I had been friends with Nicky for 7 years, we met up several times a year in Portsmouth through our BCN Hampshire Meet Up group and all the group are devastated by her death.

Nicky's husband emailed me:

"Nicky’s condition did unfortunately deteriorate rapidly after her ascites drain and she then spent some time in hospital and for the last 8 days of her life at the local Hospice.
It should comfort you to know that the treatment at the hospice was wonderful and Nicky passed away peacefully in her sleep with no pain, I was with her along with my daughters, and she had seen her little grandson who she adored only a few days earlier."
He will let me know details of the funeral when known as it will, due to Covid, only be for family but will be live streamed.
In person, Nicky was just the kindest, knowledgeable and supportive lady. She was diagnosed with primary in 2003 and then secondaries in 2008. Always around to answer any questions and offer help and advice - I will miss her so much. I know she has helped many of us on this forum over the years. A real privilege to have known her, may she rest in peace, free of pain xx
