Deborah James congratulated her father one last time on Father's Day. She showed how Alistair carefully brushes her hair as she has no energy to do so because of her terminal illness.
Many might have thought it wasn't just a family photo, but a heartbreaking cry of pain. However, Deborah, who is dying of incurable colon cancer, has not lost heart or fallen into despondency. She has even given several interviews in which she admits that it's hard for her to celebrate the holidays, knowing it will be her last.
However, she has already come to terms with her terminal illness and wants to live the rest of her time in good spirits and close to her loved ones.
