Richard Madeley talks mum's dying wish in last conversation amid dementia and cancer fight

“And she nodded and said, ‘That’s right, yes, yes, yes, of course, yes. Oh good’, she said, ‘It’ll be fine now.’ 

“And she sort of slipped back to sleep and that was it, that was kind of the last conversation.”

He added: “Although she couldn’t remember her mother, she could remember her very simple Christian faith, which sadly I don’t share. And it was great that she still had that comfort when when she went.”

The Dementia Hero Awards’ virtual ceremony will take place tomorrow at 7pm during Dementia Action Week 2021.

Alongside Richard’s appearance as host, the awards will also be presented by Society Ambassadors Angela Rippon CBE, Carey Mulligan and Sir Tony Robinson and our supporters Judy Finnigan and Anne-Marie Duff.
