Lucy Meacock Illness And Health Update: She Is Doing Well

Lucy Meacock appears to be not doing completely fine. Although she did not disclose her health problem, she mentioned that she has not been doing well.

Unfortunately, she has a family history of terminal illnesses. Her mom, diagnosed with bone cancer in her 50s, passed away while Lucy was still in her 20s.

Since there was no hospice in her hometown of Chester then, Lucy is a staunch supporter and admirer of these establishments.

Two years after her mom died, her dad was also diagnosed with terminal cancer. He died soon after, despite all of their efforts. Lucy was still in her 20s.
