Meet Stu: You’re still living until you go

Meet Stu: You’re still living until you go

Stu is using hospice services to support him and his family. He had expected he’d be still working in his business until he received his diagnosis. But although his circumstances have changed, his attitude remains utterly positive. He sees he has plenty of control about how that happens and how he feels about it.

“If we have something negative hit our family unit, we go ‘bugger’ and move on. We don’t let it beat us up,” he says.

“If my number’s come up on this ride, I’d go ‘Hey, I’m happy with that. I’m not going to rock the boat. I’m just going to enjoy what’s remaining in front of me and call them privileges.”
