A family who know all too well the difference your support makes is the family of the wonderful late Jacqui.

Jacqui was diagnosed with cancer in 2018 and in February 2020 received the devastating news that it had spread and was terminal.  No words anyone wishes to hear.

Having lived all her life in Tredegar, married to her loving husband Chris for over 20 years and two beautiful daughters, Jacqui was referred to the Hospice in July 2018 and received support from our specialist nurse, complimentary therapist and welfare rights advisor until she sadly passed away in April 2020 at the age of 57.

 

 

Meselle recalls

“All of the team at the Hospice were amazing, I can’t put into words how brilliant Michelle was, she advised mam what she could claim when she wasn’t able to work anymore and helped sort out the paperwork, since mam had died she has helped me loads as everything was in mam’s name, so she had supported me to change everything over.

 

Jane helped mam understand what things meant when she would have test results or appointments with the doctor, she would call in to see mam just to check in on her, as mam wasn’t one to ring and ask for help

Mam fought a brave battle and would never show if she was in pain or felt unwell. But would open up to Jane when she would come and visit. She also enjoyed the complementary therapies from Matt as they would help her relax and unwind”.

Meselle ends “Knowing the hospice is there to support us really has helped, this September I will be walking to celebrate Mam”.
