What our patients and families say about us
Case study: donations in action
The Anderson family from Ombersley have their own personal experience of how much they have been helped by St Richard’s.
Mother of two, Katy Anderson, was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2004 and was given just three months to live. But after radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and a wide range of treatments, Katy lived for four years.
As soon as Katy was diagnosed her husband Peter, got in touch with St Richard’s and for the whole of her illness she was supported, mainly at home, by a St Richard’s Nurse Specialist. Katy and Peter’s children Rachael and Naomi were just 16 and 11 at the time their mum was diagnosed
Peter said, “The medical care is fantastic but the hospice is so much more than that. They are very active with the whole family before the loved one dies and also very often for a long time afterwards. We’ve had support for seven years and it has been magnificent, and enabled us to cope with the pressures and emotions that we have faced.”
