Gemma and Dan




Meet Gemma and Dan

I’d like to tell you about Gemma and Dan. I was reading the Thanet Extra a couple of weeks ago and came across a remarkable story concerning Gemma Lythgoe and her fiancee, Dan Terry.

Gemma has an incurable brain tumour but especially wants to get married to Dan in September. They were both sixteen when they met at Explorer Scouts nine years ago. Dan works at McDonald’s in Minster and they are trying to save together enough money for the wedding.

There is no cure cure for Gemma’s condition. It is treatable, however, to a point. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy and will be doing so up to the wedding and beyond. That’s hard for anyone so I thought it was time I did something good for others and contact Gemma.
I spoke to Marnie, Gemma’s mum and we all met up at the Botany Bay hotel  in Broadstairs.

They didn’t have anyone to film the wedding but they do now and it is my absolute pleasure.

They told me that quite a few wedding suppliers had already donated their services. If there is anything you can do to help Gemma and Dan, it would be so very appreciated. A wedding day is probably the biggest day in most people’s life and this wedding is going to be something very special indeed.

A very special day for Gemma and Dan

Charity Macmillan Crossroads are also playing a very important role in Gemma and Dan’s fundraising. To date, six hundred pounds has been raised but more is needed to at least give the happy couple a well deserved honeymoon at Port Lympne after the wedding.

If you would like to help Gemma and Dan with their big day, check out their Facebook page Making Dreams Come True For Gemma.

A big thank you to the Thanet Extra for the use of the photo.
