This time last year I had a call from Julie to let me know that she had been diagnosed with terminal cancer, and had probably at most three months to live. This was a real shock – she had only been ill for a few weeks.
She asked that her news was kept very confidential, whilst she attempted to get her head around things (as much as anyone can). When she was discharged from hospital she went to stay at St. Peter’s Hospice in Keynsham, where she received fantastic support. To show our appreciation for that, Vikki Cambridge, Kelly Gast and I took part in the Midnight Walk. We kept this fairly quiet, in respect to Julie’s wishes. Julie died last August, slightly sooner than her prognosis.
