‘We filmed our dad’s final months to help people’

Two brothers who filmed the final two years of their father’s life said they hoped to release a documentary in 2021 to show “the truth” about living with cancer.

Marcus and Robin Brooker, from near Sudbury in Suffolk, started recording their father John’s battle with the disease in 2018, after he stopped receiving chemotherapy because it was making him feel too ill.

The former nursing manager was diagnosed in 2004 and told he could expect to live for two more years, and died at his home in May 2020, aged 75.

Marcus Brooker said: “It was all about showing people the truth – the good times and the bad times – and that you can talk about cancer, you can still have a life with a terminal diagnosis.”

US pharmacist held for sabotaging doses, Health News, ET HealthWorld

A pharmacist at a Wisconsin hospital has been arrested and accused of intentionally removing more than 500 doses of Moderna vaccine from refrigeration last week, knowing that the vaccines would be rendered useless and that the people receiving them would think they were protected against the virus when they were not, the police department in Grafton, Wisconsin, said Thursday. The pharmacist, a man whom the police did not name, was arrested on recommended charges of first degree recklessly endangering safety, adulterating a prescription drug and criminal damage to property, all felonies. It was not clear what his motive may have been. The Grafton police department is investigating the incident along with the FBI and the FDA. On Thursday, Jeff Bahr, the president of Aurora Health Care Medical Group where the pharmacist worked, said the hospital had consulted with Moderna and had been reassured that the spoiled vaccines would not harm the individuals who received them. He said the 57 people who received the vaccine had been notified.
