Christmas is meant to be the most wonderful time of the year. But what do you do when you’re told you won’t get another Christmas?
This was the heart-breaking reality for 41-year-old mum Janine, who was being cared for at Coventry Myton Hospice Inpatient Unit in October 2019.
Determined to give her four-year-old daughter Charlotte festive memories to last a lifetime, Janine’s family brought Christmas forward. If it was going to be their last Christmas together, it was going to be the best one they had ever had.
Carols, decorations and festive jumpers were the order of the day on a chilly but sunny October morning for Janine, her family and friends. And because no Christmas at Myton would be complete without a little bit of magic, Myton staff contacted the wonderful people at The Phoenix Children’s Foundation to arrange for two of Santa’s reindeer to bring even more Christmas cheer to Janine and her daughter’s day.
George and Mistletoe quite literally arrived at Coventry Myton Hospice with bells on to surprise the family on the patio outside Janine’s room! It was certainly one of the most memorable Christmas celebrations Myton has been a part of. After petting the reindeer, walking them around the hospice gardens, and taking lots of photos, the family went to enjoy a home cooked Christmas dinner.
Janine died in the care of Coventry Myton Inpatient Unit a few weeks after her very special Christmas Day.
