Welcome to Calums Cabin
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 days after his first symptoms were noticed, Calum fought with great determination, dealing with his illness with great humour. Calum was an inspiration to all who knew and met him. Calum always laughed and smiled and his main priority was always to think of others.
