We were very honoured when one of our patients, Terry, agreed to share his story with us, as part of the national Dying Matters awareness week in May 2017.

Please take the time to listen to each part of Terry’s very powerful and moving words about his experiences.

As part of Dying Matters Week 2017, patient Terry, from St Austell, talks about his determination to set goals.  A recent one was to leave Mount Edgcumbe Hospice for a day to watch Plymouth Argyle secure promotion to League One.  In part 1 of his story, Terry talks of a very special day out.
