In Memory


14 Dec 1967 - 08 May 2019

We met Rollo in the summer of 2016. He had only just been diagnosed with melanoma. He was determined that melanoma was not going to control or define him and following a conference where he met many other melanoma patients and families, he began to take control of his situation. What can we say about the support that he gave to others? He was always there for the patient community, always. Rollo supported many people in many ways, from a voice at the other end of a phone, to a very large online presence, where he could be relied upon to offer advice and support to others who were in similar positions to him. He became very involved in a number of Melanoma UK projects, meeting politicians, doctors, mayors, members of the public. It didn't matter who Rollo met, they were drawn to him immediately, his passion and knowledge around so many subjects was truly remarkable. After undergoing many treatments Rollo and his lovely family were eventually given the devastating news that nothing further could be done to help him. In true HRH style (HRH had become his nickname over the years) he met this news head on and decided that he wanted to leave a legacy in his name and that was to be a mole mapping machine. Rollo had watched the work that Melanoma UK had done in fundraising for these machines and he wanted to do the same. At Rollo's funeral donations were very kindly taken for St Luke's Hospice and for Melanoma UK. We hope that we can now continue to raise the amount required in order to achieve this on his behalf. Thank you for your generosity and support - HRH, we will remember you always.
