World Day of the Sick
The 11th of February is a day when the Church celebrates the fifteenth World Day of the Sick. It is a day to remember those who are suffering and those who live every day with illness. One person who has lived with serious illness is Catherine Thronton. In November 1999, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then she has written two books, “Why Mum? A Small Child Dealing with a Big Problem” and more recently “Take Heart: Coping with Serious Illness”. Miriam Gormally asked her how she first discovered that she had breast cancer.
