How your support is helping to offer a hand in the darkness to local people when they need us...
"The Hospice really gave him the ability to stay at home, which was where he wanted to be. At any time, day or night, we felt we could call someone – we never felt alone. The Hospice was our crutch and guide.
But by early 2017, the cancer had spread to his brain. We decided it was time to tell the kids.
On 17 May we called an ambulance and by the evening we were all at his side at the Hospice. What was really special was that one of the nurses on duty that night has a child in the same school year as Kieran. She felt like family. At 4am they told me he was going, and I held his hand."
