Dying cancer patient gets to say final goodbye to beloved horse

Friends for 25 years, a 77-year-old cancer patient and her favorite horse Bronwen got to say a final farewell on Monday, BBC News reports.

Sheila Marsh was being treated at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary, in Wigan, and after seeing one of her three dogs a week ago, she asked staff if it would be possible to bid Bronwen farewell, too. The hospital staff arranged for Bronwen to visit the parking lot, and they rolled Marsh's hospital bed out to see him.

Marsh had worked at Haydock Park Racecourse before she became ill. The grandmother owned six horses, three dogs, and three cats. She died early Tuesday morning.
