Why do they have to stay at home when Phil is supposed to be her carer? He's getting paid by the state for doing it so why do Sam 'n Emma have to be there too? Wasn't it candida and not cancer anyway, so why is she going for a mammogram? I wonder what their local health trust does as far as regular mammograms for women over 50. Mine does them once every three years, so If things are the same in their area, Audrey should have at at least three by now.
These are all part of life's mysteries when it comes to the Chawners. Magazines like Closer tend to straddle the line between fact and bullcarp. If someone says something more than once, they accept it as truth. I seriously doubt they employ a fact checker.
