A tribute to Donna


Dr Donna McCormick and husband Greg Iredale

I have had a day of very mixed emotions.

My job involves editing the Huddersfield Examiner's website and when you read today's front page article I think you will understand.


I have spoken to Donna's mum and emailed her husband Greg.

I just wanted to say again to Donna's family that I am thinking about you all at this very difficult time and thank you for all your kind words.



As a member of Donna's family I would like to thank you for your kind words Adrian. We all wish you well and are praying for a speedy recovery for you.

I would like to add my thanks for Adrians kind tribute to Donna, she would be flattered.

Donna recieved tremendous strength and support from baldys blog during her treatment. It really was a great help, thanks baldy.

congratulations on your engagment and good luck.


I just want to express my sincere condolences. I was very shocked by the news and wish Donna's family all the best.

Hi Adrian

Please pass on my condolences to Donna`s family.She looks great in the photo and will be remembered in this way.

How are things going with you??

Crewe managed to lose one-nil ( pathetic score line ) against Leeds!

Take Care and Best Wishes to you and your family


I am an old school friend of Donna's and like all her family and friends, I was extremely shocked and saddened to hear of her terribly untimely death. I attended her funeral service today which was an extremely moving experience and it was an incredible demonstration of her character and courage that she had planned the whole service when she knew that the end was near. Greg mentioned your blog when talking to him after the service and having read about what you have been through yourself, I thought your words were very comforting and your courage and strength was obviously an inspiration to Donna. I wish you all the best in your ongoing treatment.
