We are very saddened to hear about the passing of our dear member Bev Nye.

Bev and his wife Janet were active volunteers and contributed enormously to the wellbeing of other MDS patients by starting the Derbyshire Local MDS Group. We will miss him badly.

Bev and Janet shared their story with us for our Newsletter back in 2015. You can read their story here

Their daughter Rosemary has set up a Memorial fund to remember and honour him.

Here are her moving words:

Dad had MDS, a rare blood cancer which transformed to acute myeloid leukaemia this january and sadly passed away on the 14th of June 2019.

MDS UK was a great help and comfort to Dad and Mum as he battled this condition over the last number of years. He was always full of fun and positivity and fought so hard to beat the cancer, he will be sorely missed by everyone.

He wanted to support the charity as much as he could so asked that people donate to MDS UK instead of sending flowers for the funeral so we have set up this page to that end. Please help support the charity which gave him so much support.

Love you always Dad you are our hero who could fix almost everything, you will always be our sunshine, our hairy gorilla, bouncy tigger and yellow banana shark, your trusty assistant / youngest daughter.

Our deepest condolences to Bev's family and friends. We are immensely grateful to them for choosing MDS UK as recipient of donations in his memory.

All donations will go to ensure that MDS patients and families receive the attention and information we can provide to help them deal with the condition.
