Faith’s cancer heartbreak

Faith gets the news her chemotherapy is not working.

Already struggling with the harsh side effects, Faith makes the difficult decision to stop further treatment.

Chas who is already fully in denial about her mother’s prognosis having forced her to continue chemo against Faith’s wishes, can’t believe it.

Cain, meanwhile, is finding it hard to forget just how much his mum has hurt him in the past.

The siblings will spend an emotional evening reflecting on their childhood as they try to come to terms with what the future may hold.

Chas is certain Cain will regret it if he doesn’t reconcile with their mum before it’s too late, but will Cain heed her words?
