Hospice of St. Francis HOME VISIT

We thought it would be good to plot Bryan's recovery from extensive chemotherapy to give others hope and confidence. We wanted to pay homage to the treatment received and the amazing support from the Hospice of St. Francis and Rennie Grove Hospice at home. A potted history is that Bryan was diagnosed with myelodysplasia in August 2013, after many nasty fevers and infections which required hospitalisation the illness became Acute Myeloid Leukaemia, by Christmas. After the removal of a gist in his tummy which required a partial gastrectomy, chemo therapy commenced at the end of January. There were three heavy sessions of chemo therapy which were very debilitating. The nursing care at the Royal Free hospital was amazing, his specialist Panagiotis Kottaridis, was brilliant, warm and caring. The help and support of both our local hospices has been unbelievable, they have always been there when we needed them. Bryan is at home after six months in hospital IN REMISSION and we thought it would be helpful to share our recovery strength and hope with others who may experience something similar - There is a light at the end of the tunnel and really important "Do not to wait for the storm to pass, but to learn to dance in the rain" YOU CAN SEE BY THIS SHORT FILM SOME OF THE AMAZING HELP WE HAVE HAD FROM THE HOSPICE OF ST.
