Gavin and Lori's Story
"When I walked down the aisle earlier this year, I knew the man I was about to marry would soon be gone."
"At just 39 years old, Gavin was told he had only weeks to live after his extremely rare form of bladder cancer had spread to his stomach. We were crushed. Only eight months before, we had celebrated the birth of our first child, Fletcher, and we were beginning to plan our wedding. Everything seemed perfect. Then, in a heartbeat, our lives turned upside down and our dreams of a wonderful future together shattered completely. We were in shock, so afraid of what was to come and we felt very alone. But thankfully, Ashgate Hospicecare was there for us."
