Listen: Andy in his own words

With just months to live, Andy Fitchett is not only organising his own wake but going to it...

What would you do if you were told you had only months left to live?

In an exclusive interview with Sandy Martin, on BBC Radio Wiltshire at the weekend, Andy Fitchett reveals his plans following the news that he has just months to live:

"You will be inspired and touched by Andy’s story," says Sandy, "it's powerful and profound.

"It could change your life and attitude forever."

My father was a vegetarian, never drank, smoked, was a marathon runner, ran the London Marathon in 1992 and was diagnosed with stomach cancer, aged 69, in May 1992, and died 8 weeks later, aware like Andy of his fate. I stayed with him every second of those eight weeks and it was a huge privilege to be with him. Andy,s daughters are experiencing that same privilege.
