Sick couple married 67 years move hospital beds to spend final days together

Staff helped couple spend as much time together as possible


To spend their last days together, Beatrice Whitehead and her husband, Bert, had their beds moved by hospital staff so the two could be side-by-side.

Beatrice, 87, had decided to stop treatment for her bone cancer, and Bert, who had also fallen ill, was right by her side when she made the difficult decision.

For 67 years, the couple was inseparable and it was clear when Beatrice got sick, Bert couldn't cope without her. See more on the story above.
