The Basey Family's Story

Basey family at Christmas

Mum-of-two Mandy adored everything about Christmas. When she was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2018, she desperately wanted to spend one last Christmas at home with her family.  Our specialist nurses worked with her husband Kevin, son James and daughter Laura to make this happen.

Read Mandy’s family’s moving story about what it meant to spend one last Christmas together here.
