FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS
Husband pays tribute to late wife
The heartbroken husband of Natalie Sandersmohammad has paid tribute to his wife after her tragic death at the age of just 31 – calling her “a true inspiration”. Coatbridge mum Natalie passed away peacefully last Monday, having been diagnosed with grade four metastatic breast cancer in September 2020.
Dee Mohammad paid a heartfelt tribute to his beloved wife, saying: “Natalie was the most beautiful woman inside and out to ever walk this earth.
“She truly was an inspiration, not only to those who knew her but to complete strangers who had never even met her.
“She will live on forever in our hearts.”
Natalie had fulfilled her final wish to marry Dee in a beautiful ceremony in May which was arranged by the Wedding Wish Makers charity, when she was walked down the aisle by the couple’s young son, three-yearold Zeke.
She had bravely continued to raise awareness of breast cancer and its symptoms throughout her own health battle.
A brave Coatbridge mum who battled breast cancer, and raised awareness of the terrible disease, has tragically passed away aged just 31.
Natalie Sanders-mohammad was given 12 months to live after being diagnosed with Grade 4 metastatic breast cancer in September last year.
Despite undergoing extensive treatment, the mum-of-one was told in August that her latest course of potentially life-extending medication had stopped working.
She passed away peacefully in a hospice last Monday afternoon, with her loving family, including husband Dee Mohammad, by her side.
The doting mum’s final wish had been to marry her amazing partner Dee, with the couple tying the knot at Crossbasket Castle in East Kilbride in May.
The couple’s adorable threeyear-old son Zeke walked his mum down the aisle after their special day had been made possible by S c o t s charity, the Wedding Wish Makers.
Despite her failing health, Natalie continued to urge people to regularly check their breasts and to seek help if they noticed any changes.
In a heartbreaking tribute, Dee said his wife was a “true inspiration” who will “live on forever in our hearts”.
He wrote: “It breaks my heart to be writing this but unfortunately yesterday at 4.20pm Natalie passed away peacefully in the hospice.
“I would like to thank everybody for the much-needed support over the last two years, we couldn’t have done this without you.
“I appreciate everyone who knew but hasn’t posted to allow me the time and chance to do this myself.
“Natalie was the most beautiful woman inside and out to ever walk this earth.
“She truly was an inspiration not only to those who knew her but to complete strangers who had never even met her.
“She will live on forever in our hearts x.”
Natalie was given her terminal diagnosis just weeks after being given the all clear from Grade 3 triple-negative breast cancer.
She initially sought help after finding a large, painful lump in her breast in October 2019 before being ordered to undergo eight rounds of chemotherapy.
Her treatment was stopped early due to the coronavirus pandemic with a double mastectomy also postponed.
Doctors discovered she had the BRCA gene which increased her chances of the cancer returning.
She was told she was cancer free in May last year but began experiencing pain in her breast again the following month.
Natalie was sent for additional tests in September with medics discovering the cancer had worsened.
She was then forced to plan her dream wedding while also arranging her own funeral at the same time.
