Palliative Care

Joan is doing it tough this morning...two major vomits, extreme tiredness and weakness. Yesterday, for the first time, she told me that she wanted to be finished with all this.

This morning I took her to one of her sewing groups to say goodbye and donate a heap of books.

Last night we signed up with the Silver Chain Palliative Care Unit. Read about it on the Family Blog.


  1. Dearest Joan,

    as sad as I am to read you are parting with your sewing books, fabric & sewing machines it's nice to know you at least have control of their destiny. The cancer can't rob of these choices.

    I want to thank you Joan for being interested in what I do, it has always been an honour to see your face in the crowd and without your reassuring & knowing guidance I wouldn't be free-motion-embroidering my way into the future!

    1. Happy 2021, I just want to quickly share some real tips on how to beat even the last stage of Cancer or Tinnitus. I know 2020 wasn't a great year for many people, but it has indeed been a lovely one for me and my family simply because of these tips.
      My name is Anna,  I had Tinnitus (Meniere's Disease ) for 6 years, it was really hell for me and some years ago my husband was diagnosed with Lung & Bronchus Cancer and the doctor’s told me that there was nothing they could do to save my husband. Then a work colleague i have known for a long time told me about real natural herbs and oils, i told her that my husband Lung & Bronchus Cancer was in the last stage that i don’t think the natural medicines will be able to help, and she persuaded me to try. Because of the love I have for my husband, I decided to give it a try. She recommended ( ) to me and I visited their website where I learned more and got herbs medicines for myself and my husband. I was opportune to have a private talk with the herbs doctor in charge and told him my situation and that of my husband and he assured me that after 2 months my husband's Lung & Bronchus Cancer will be gone. All this was in August 2019, i followed the procedures and got some herbs medicines and oils, which indeed after a few weeks of applying it i realised i never experienced Meniere's Disease symptoms anymore and it's exactly one year now since the doctors confirmed that my husband is perfectly okay and no longer suffering from Cancer. If you know any one who is suffering from Meniere's Disease or Cancer, you can save his/her life by contacting Doctor Osojo via his email : ( DR.OSOJO@GMAIL.COM ). it worked exactly as the doctor prescribed.

  2. So sorry Joan is having a rough time, and I am sorry Kev you are having to watch this happen to the love of your it a sad situation for everyone. I do hope palliative care people will be kind, gentle, understanding and loving. Everything dear Joan deserves now. I was pleased to read she was able to go to her sewing group to share her things with her friends, just a beautiful thing to do.....always in my heart and prayers...;-)Hugs

  3. Thank you for keeping us informed. I am lifting you all up in prayer right now- for peace and comfort. A scripture to share with Joan: "Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever."~Psalm 73:23

  4. Dear Joan and Kev,

    I am so sorry to hear that things are so tough now.
    I hope that 'Silver Chain' is helpful to Joan.

    Keeping you both in my thoughts

  5. My love, prayers and tears are with you - and some very special memories from many, many years. Joan will always be in my heart. Love to you both.
