My beautiful sister was diagnosed in January 2019 with Brain Cancer. Her prognosis is terminal and her condition has deteriorated significantly. The family have been caring for her as well as balancing work and their family needs. She has no mobility, difficulty swollowing and unable to perform any personal care. Last week we placed her in pallative care following a couple of severe turns and unable to move her around the home. She has now been determined to not be in the end of life cycle at the moment and we have been told to organise a nursing home in the interim.
