jack121 Posted March 4 Share Posted March 4 (edited) Kate Garraway reveals that taking care of husband derek who has the fictional disease of long covid, has cost her thousands, and she needs our help. How this poor woman struggles: much-loved presenter Kate Garraway has revealed the shocking financial cost of caring for her husband Derek, who has remained seriously ill since contracting long-Covid three years ago. Speaking to the ever-impartial Sun paper she described everyday as a "roller-coaster", unsure whether Derek's health will improve or decline from one day to the next or if he could die, bravely describing the ever-smiling Derek's "fluctuating" condition as "heartbreaking" Derak just cannot stop grinning. Kate also described the tear-jerking financial impact of caring for her political aid partner - whom she married in 2005 - understandably describing her predicament as "tough". Despite an emotionally turbulent few years, Kate remains strong, insisting that "we'll never give up" on her "incredibly supportive" husband. During the height of his recent battle, Kate also revealed that Derek was just minutes from death, and was in fact flown to Mexico for round two of a potentially life-saving medical trial Garraway gave thanks to her friends, colleagues and employers for providing her with the money needed for arranging medical care for Derek overseas, also giving a shoutout to British Airways and American Airlines for helping him fly the 11,000 mile round trip first-class free of charge. Derek received treatment in Mexico - where he stayed for 28 days - before returning home, with the current plan being to fly back to South America soon "for another round of treatment", as Kate says, to "continue the trial in a way that is financially viable as soon as more donations come in."
