Rob's story

I don't know how to put into words how much the hospice helped my entire family.

Carol Suter from Killamarsh was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in October 2011. In November she had part of her stomach lining removed and had a hysterectomy. By December she had recovered from surgery and had her first chemotherapy session, but a week later a major stroke left her paralysed and unable to speak. Carol was admitted to hospital and was given a life expectancy of just six months. It was at this point that a palliative care nurse at the hospital suggested a transfer to Ashgate Hospicecare. Carol's son Rob explains how the hospice made the harrowing experience of losing his mum bearable.
