Always remembering


Happy, outgoing, adventurous and caring, Hamish had a wonderful sense of humour and always made others smile. He passed away when he was three years old.

Hamish’s story  

One of Hamish’s favourite films was Toy Story and he loved to role play. 

He had developed a limp and then fell at soft play, which led to a trip to A&E. After a series of tests, in January 2015, the family received the devastating news that Hamish had neuroblastoma. He immediately started on high-dose chemotherapy and amazed everyone by smiling throughout. 

Surgery followed in June 2015, which was successful. Hamish was doing well, and Kris and Hollie felt positive for the future. But in November 2015, the disease took hold quickly and suddenly. 

Hamish passed away on 14th November 2015.

Hollie and Kris appeal to everyone to continue fundraising to help children going through the same battle Hamish did because that’s what he’d want. They have also created the charity Hamish Dear’s Warm Hugs continuing his legacy – providing financial assistance and support to children diagnosed with cancer who are being treated at the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.  

"Just when we thought he was beating this terrible disease this has happened totally out of the blue and we are in deep shock. We are heartbroken, just ripped apart. We feel empty inside and every room we walk into is empty without him there. He is our whole world, and every waking moment hurts like hell. This is not ‘goodbye’ but ‘see you later alligator’. Sleep tight and sweet dreams darling, we will remember your spirit, kindness, laugh and smile. Mummy and daddy will always and never stop loving you."

Hamish’s parents, Hollie and Kris
