COVID-19: This family has not left home for a year due to their father's cancer diagnosis

Greg Priddy was diagnosed with cancer at the end of November last year, after his strange behaviour and sudden weakness on his left side prompted his wife to make him seek medical help. “It was a shock,” he said. “It’s not the kind of news you expect to hear. Because of COVID, I was on my own when I was told the news. I had to tell Jo over the phone and struggled to get the words out.

His immune system had been stripped by high-dose chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant, and doctors recommended that he shield even after the government advised against it. The Priddy family has only travelled as far as their garden in the past year. Amelia, Jo, Greg, and Wills are pictured from left to right. Image.

After the father was diagnosed with a brain tumour, the family of four is preparing for a second Christmas at home.

“The first few days when I was in hospital, all sorts of things are going through your mind… how long have I got? Is it terminal? Am I going to see the kids grow up?
