End of Life – Hillcoff

TORONTO, ONT.: JAN. 20, 2015 — Ken Hillcoff is photographed inside his Markham home where he lived with his wife Pat before she passed away on April 15, 2014. The photograph is of the two of them during a cruise together before Pat got sick. She was originally diagnosed in 2009 and died last year after a five year struggle with lung transplant, kidney failure and breast cancer. They were married for 40 years. Ken did Pat’s dialysis in their bedroom for two years, and he also spent a huge amount of time at his wife’s side during prolonged stays in the ICU.
