A love story: for Ken

Elizabeth Howkins

When Elizabeth's husband Ken is diagnosed with bone cancer they plan one last dream - theend of life care at home they hope will be best for all the family. The challenges of mobility, beds and the growing need for pain relief are exacerbated by issues of weekend and bank holiday working. A committed and dedicated Community Matron solves that problem but, although their final dream cannot come true and Ken has to go into hospice care, those last hours are still spend as a family and a couple in love.
