Ali spent the days leading up to Christmas visiting her elderly father in hospital. Ray is living with Parkinson’s disease and his health is in a slow but steady decline. He suddenly suffered an acute illness just before the holidays and Ali was trying to get him home in time for Christmas Day.
But Ali is especially anxious about her Dad’s physical and mental wellbeing. Ray was the victim of a vicious scam that deliberately targeted a kind, infirmed and partially sighted man. At first Ali was relieved the criminals just took her Dad’s money and he wasn’t physically harmed. Now, she believes her Dad’s health was badly impacted and family and friends still feel the devastating effects.
