Judy D’cruz (Biog)

Judy D’cruz died on 20th January 2023 after a 10 Year Battle with a Brain Tumour. After an initial diagnosis in Sept 2012 of a Grade 3 Tumour after radiothereapy Judy was able to live a good life with her family the centre of all that she did. She was able to have some wonderful holidays to all parts of the world and got to see the birth of four fabulous grandaughters whom she loved dearly. A MRI scan in May 2022 showed that the tumour had started to grow again and this time was a Grade4 Glioblastoma. Having been involved in fundraising for many years Judy was well aware of what this meant. After surgery and unsuccessful  Chemotherapy Judy was able to have a fairly decent summer and went on holiday with all her family. Judy wasn’t in the best of health for her 60th birthday and Christmas but was able to partake and enjoy herself. Judy was relatively well until the last few days of her life enjoying plenty of visits from friends and family  and lots of meals out. When Judy died at 16:40 on 20th Jan 2023 she left behind her husband Win, and her precious sons Dan, Andrew & Mark as well as her Granddaughters Isla, Maddie, Ellis and Amelie.
Judy was a remarkable person who lived life to the full and was remembered by many for her big laugh and beautiful smile. Not a bad way to be remembered. She will be missed by so many but we vow to continue to raise funds to beat this dreadful disease, so that  in future when someone gets a diagnosis of the dreaded GBM4 that can be told its treatable not terminal.
