In the UK we have legislation which protects the families of people with disabilities (and cancer is included in this) because mis-treating close family members is considered indirect discrimination. I’m no lawyer and cannot say if this would have applied in this case if it had happened in the UK but it felt pretty rotten to us. The hotel accepted this and have made amends.
We’ve had some really kind and thoughtful comments and thousands of people have visited the blog. Once again we have learnt that while cancer can be truly awful, it also brings out the very best in most people. Thank you for all the support and having our backs – it matters a great deal.
