Jacqui Aster has first-hand experience of hospice care and how it makes a real difference to so many people affected by cancer and other life limiting illnesses every day. Although she felt apprehensive when she was first referred to Dorothy House Hospice Care, Jacqui admits that she wouldn't be without their help now and says that it enables her to be herself, live well and do things her own way.
