Elaine Taylor

The Elaine Taylor Tribute fund

  • How would you describe them?

    "Elaine was seen by everyone as a caring and loving person, always putting others before herself and immensely proud of her family."

    From Graham Taylor

  • What did they love most?

    "Elaine loved her family, travel, gym classes and cycling all over Europe with myself - my wife and partner of 43 years."

    From Graham Taylor

Elaine passed away on 6th June 2019, just a few short weeks after being diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer on her spine and pelvis. The lung cancer itself was only diagnosed as a result of the deterioration of her bone structure impacting on exercise.

We want to use this fund and the associated events and activities to both raise funds for support and also raise the profile of secondary lung cancer which is especially hard to detect in fitness enthusiasts.

  • Mrs Adele Phillips £10.00 22/05/2020

    Graham, this is a wonderful thing to do in your wife's memory. Lung cancer is a dreadful disease. My own sister died 4 months ago only weeks after diagnosis and too quickly for us to access MacMillan. However, last year my husband and I did access MacMillan when he was terminally ill. They gave the most amazing help and support enabling me to care for John at home. Good luck and thank you for what you are doing.

  • Mr David Phelps Donated to Ride for Elaine 2020 £150.00 19/04/2020

    Hi GT, this one's for Big Dave who sadly left us this morning after a long fight against cancer (and of course Elaine). He was a fantastic neighbour to my parents, always there for Mum, helping with the car or just the recipient of one of her banana cakes which were his favourite. Our thoughts are with Mel and the kids. David
