Be Child Cancer Aware are extremely honoured and privileged to have been asked by Caroline Spiers to include Calums Cabin in our website. On behalf of all families of children with cancer, we would like to thank Duncan, Caroline, Jenna and of course, Calum, for offering the Cabin to our families.
12 year old Rothesay boy, Calum Speirs lost his fight for life little more than a year after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. Brave Calum, a first year pupil at Rothesay Academy, died peacefully at home in Mountstuart Road on Friday 16th February 2007. The funeral service, much of it arranged by Calum himself, was held at the former High Kirk on Wednesday 21st February 2007.
Calum was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour only a few days after the first symptoms were noticed – but he’s left his family with a host of happy memories from those 13 months. During that time, Calum was an inspiration to all who knew and met him. Calum always laughed and smiled, and his priority was always to think of others.
Calum and his family had decided that they would like to keep helping others by having a Holiday Cabin in Calum’s name to allow other families who are dealing with a child with cancer to have a wonderful holiday on the Isle of Bute.
