John's Song - Orlando Gough


John's Song is an extraordinary love song about a man who has lung cancer caring for his wife who suffers from Alzheimer's.

The Alzheimer's Society is committed to improving care for sufferers of dementia and provides information for carers. It has over 250 affiliated branches and support groups across the UK.

Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is a rich source of information about lung cancer. The foundation is dedicated to funding medical research into lung cancer and to providing support for people with the disease. There is a free national helpline: 0800 358 7200. The charity also provides free booklets with specific information for sufferers and their families.

The Greenwich and Bexley Cottage Hospice provides free, professional care for people with life-threatening illnesses from the south east London area. John Dair attends the Cottage Hospice where he worked with composer Orlando Gough to create his song.
