Lee had a number of milestones he wanted to reach. He wanted to get married and he wanted to have Christmas at home, as he always had with his family. Thanks to Trinity, he met those milestones.
Lee was diagnosed in March last year, three days before our daughter, Dorothy, was born. There was hope though, and he started treatment to give us time. After all, he was only 33.
But Lee started to become more poorly and needed more pain relief. His cancer had spread and we needed more support. That’s when we met the amazing Trinity nurses. We first saw them in the hospital, and then started to rely on the Hospice at Home team to help with Lee’s pain and sickness. When it got to the point where we were calling them almost hourly, we knew he had to go into the hospice to get his pain under control. Within 24 hours, it was like he was a different person.
