We were lucky enough to meet Emmy and Jake at last year's JustGiving Awards when they won Fundraising Team of the Year.
We'd already spent months following their journey. Their story of childhood sweethearts reunited, the tandem cycle to Copenhagen to raise money for the Royal Marsden and their wedding last year. Emmy's bravery, kindness and positivity shone throughout. The way Emmy faced her diagnosis inspired us all.
We are all so sad to hear the news that Emmy has passed away. Our thoughts are with Jake, Emmy's family, her friends and everyone she met at the Royal Marsden.
Emmy passed away peacefully at
8:30pm this evening. Susie, David, Matt, Sophie, Millie and I were all there surrounding her with love every second. She will never know how loved and how special she was to us all.
If ever there was a moment to take a minute.
Smile, love and be kind.
