Subject: Brenda's not well
I’m afraid I have some bad news for you. Brenda has received the latest results from her CT and MRI scans. The tumours in her lungs and surrounding tissue have grown significantly and the disease seems to be accelerating. She’s now very breathless and has had a very painful last few weeks – an oxygen supply has been installed in the house. The doctors have ruled out any further radio therapy and chemo is not an option. She’s almost bedbound and is not responding to emails. The doctors won’t say how long she has left but have advised that she should now make arrangements to see family and friends.
She’s being well looked after by our two children, and I’m playing a part also. I only hope we are able to care for her at home right to the end.
Thanks for all the support you and your organisation have provided over the last four plus years – I know it has given Brenda great comfort and has been a source of much useful information. Could you pass this message on to the people on the web site who Brenda has come to know?
