It is with huge sadness that I must announce that Medical Detection Dog Daisy passed away on Monday 5th February 2018 after a very short illness. Daisy was a beautiful, gentle special dog who has been my lifeline for over 13 years. Her work persuaded many of the possibilities of a revolutionary way to detect cancer. Her legacy will live on in the work of the charity and will lead to advances never thought possible. Daisy saved my life, warning me about my breast cancer 6 years ago. Sadly at the end, I could not do the same for her, but I could ensure that she was spared any unnecessary suffering and she is now at peace.
When I wrote the book ‘Daisy’s Gift’ I knew that one day Daisy would no longer be by my side, the last lines in the book, were written for the moment she passed away.
Please do not think of me with sadness, think only of me with great love and adoration. I was sent to you as a gift, I came to you in a time and season when you needed me most. I , too, also needed you. I was sent to be your constant companion and confidante, this was my only task, and I asked nothing in return.
Rest in peace dear Daisy.
