Janice has bowel cancer and has been supported by our Willen at Home community nursing team since 2021. She’s currently staying in our In-Patient Unit for help with managing her symptoms.
Despite everything the family have to contend with at the moment, Janice and her daughter, Philippa, were keen to help boost our Christmas appeal. They kindly agreed to be filmed and interviewed by ITV News Anglia to show the importance of the care we provide to the local community.
“I’ve been here three days and the care has been absolutely marvellous,” said Janice, who lives in Sherington. “I was getting really worried about my family. Because Philippa’s helping look after me, and Jamie, my son, he’s been looking after me for the last two years. Also, my husband has got lung cancer. So there’s been two of us to look after. My neighbour came and saw me yesterday and said the stress had disappeared off Jamie’s face. Knowing I’m safe and comfortable at the Hospice has helped him so much.”
