'I'm having a very good death'
Amy Logan was an in-patient at St Christopher's Hospice, South-east London. She died in June 2011, three months after being diagnosed with cancer.
Her son, David, said: "We spent every day together and spoke openly about every aspect of dying. This sharing made the whole experience of dealing with her passing much easier for me once she had gone.
"She kept her sense of humour to the end, even when she could barely talk. The nurse was telling me that a doctor had asked her if he could show mum's film clip at a conference in Greece, and mum piped up, 'I'm internationally famous!'."
Amy died peacefully with David holding one hand and her daughter, Lorna, the other, on 20 June. Dying Matters is hugely grateful to Amy and her family giving us permission to use her film. It is a lasting tribute to an insightful, courageous and compassionate woman.
In the film, Amy speaks with great candour about how, with death near, she had learned a great deal about herself and others. She was, she says, 'Having a very, very good death.'
David reveals how he and his mum had some of their best ever conversations following her diagnosis.
