Last year my world was turned upside down when my Dad was hospitalised with severe heartburn to be told he had end stage stomach cancer and put straight on palliative care. We were told he had just weeks to live.
It was all so fast, like living someone else's nightmare because it couldn't surely be happening to my Dad? You never imagine this happening to your own family.
He was cared for by ACCORD - he asked to go back to his own home, the Hospice team ensured we had all we needed. Appointments were made to have all the equipment he needed for his care, and this was fitted promptly, and he got his request while still being cared for by ACCORD Hospice.
ACCORD is a calm and bright environment, with the friendliest and most understanding staff who couldn't do enough for my Dad and my family.
I'm not fit or interested in sponsored walks etc, so I came up with the idea of using my photography skills to raise money for ACCORD while on maternity leave. I contacted the fundraising team and the support I've received in my fundraising is incredible!
