Letters: Two years on, help find Kemo the cancer support dog


Dear Editor

My name is Debbie Hall and together with my husband Olly we are the proud owners of a beautiful white staff. I brought Kemo at 11 weeks old when Olly had Cancer (Non Hodgkins Lymphoma).

Kemo is so special to us, he gave us something to focus on and look after through the dark days our family were going through.

Olly had six months of prolonged chemotherapy, but Kemo was always there to love and play even on the hardest of days.

I named Kemo after the medication that saved Olly’s life.

Then on the 8th February 2018 our hearts were broken again. Olly took Kemo out on his walk in Cotton End Wood Lane fields, he chased a rabbit and never came back.

Since he went missing we have had no confirmed sighting the fields were searched for weeks. He has a huge media following – Facebook Twitter Instagram TV Newspapers.

I am writing this letter to appeal to anyone who could shed any light since his disappearance.

We are totally devastated and we will never give up hope of finding him. We would like to point out that everything is confidential either good or bad news.

We just want closure to end our nightmare that continues everyday not knowing what has happened to him.
Please please help us, if you have any information at all no matter how big or small.

Thank you for taking time to read this letter.

Deb and Olly
