Sylvia’s son has said his mother “could not have been better cared for” by the Myton at Home team in her final days.

Donations to the Leamington Spa Rotary Club’s Trees of Light campaign this year will help Myton Hospices’ patients like Sylvia Willoughby and their families.

Sylvia was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in May 2021, in that time she faced the challenge head on and underwent two chemotherapy courses.

This year, she was referred to the Myton at Home team from which she received regular care before she passed away in April.

Gary, Sylvia’s son, said: “Myton at Home allowed mum to have her last wish, to be surrounded by her loved ones, in her own home, with dignity and to know that she was very much loved.”

The Trees of Light Campaign will be officially launched with the switch-ons of the giant trees outside St Margaret’s church in Whitnash and Leamington Town Hall this coming weekend.
