Prince William Dons Scrubs As He Opens Up About Meeting Bowel Babe Campaigner Deborah James

The Duke of Cambridge made his comments as he donned scrubs and visited
the Royal Marsden Hospital in London in order to watch a cancer patient undergo
some cutting-edge treatment from a robotic surgeon. William said her Damehood
had been an “amazing” experience for her family, as well as the nursing
staff who had cared for her and joked: “As she put it, she made bowel
cancer sexy.”

Speaking to Dr Nicos Fotiadis, who had treated Dame Deborah, about
meeting her family, he said: “It was an amazing moment for them. I loved
meeting her, she was fantastic.”

And speaking specifically about the campaigner, he shared: “I was
very honoured to be able to speak to her, it felt like a very personal family
moment… it was a glorious day as well.”

He then told chief nurse Mairead Griffin, deputy chief nurse Jo Waller
and ward sister Rowena Trono who also cared for the campaigner: “But thank
you, I know she’d want me to say this as well, thank you to you guys for
caring for her – she always spoke very highly about her care.”

It appears that Dame Deborah hadn’t lost her sense of humour when she
spoke to the royal, with William joking: “She was saying basically ‘I can
now drink, I can now drink this is brilliant’.

“She was triple parked and she kept making a joke about how many
drinks she could get lined up in front of her.”

In a heartbreaking message earlier this month, the former Sun journalist
revealed that she had headed into at-home hospice care as a result of her bowel
cancer.

In an emotional post, she shared: “The message I never wanted to
write. We have tried everything, but my body simply isn’t playing ball.

“My active care has stopped and I am now moved to hospice at-home
care, with my incredible family all around me and the focus is on making sure
I’m not in pain and spending time with them.”

She finished: “Nobody knows how long I’ve got left but I’m not able
to walk, I’m sleeping most of the days, and most things I took for granted are
pipe dreams.”
