The Oban Times - - Front Page -

An Oban mum whose heart went out to a fam­ily in Eng­land whose son may not live un­til Christ­mas due to can­cer, has put her Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions up early. Tracy Gil­mour, pic­tured with her part­ner Mal­colm Kerr, said: ‘ This is not about me – it’s about this fam­ily whose whole vil­lage have put up their dec­o­ra­tions early to show the love for a wee fam­ily who are fac­ing life with­out their son. They are mak­ing every mo­ment count. Many peo­ple would wish they could have the chance to make every mo­ment spe­cial.’ Kieran Maxwell, 18, of Heigh­ing­ton, near Dar­ling­ton, has re­fused another gru­elling round of chemo­ther­apy after it emerged the rare ter­mi­nal can­cer he has bat­tled for years has spread to his heart and lungs.
