Carters Prepare For The Worst (Pictures)


Stan gets even more devastating news next week when he hears more about the spread of his cancer. It was only last week he learned he will never walk again after the evil disease had spread to his spine.

The Carters try and make Stan comfortable at home but they are all worried as he is rushed back to hospital.


Tina is furious with Mick when she discovers that he is planning on leaving Stan in hospital, but she is soon left shocked when she discovers the extent of Stan's condition, finally realising that the decision has been taken out of their hands.

The Carters later pay Stan a difficult visit as they are forced to break the news that he won't be coming home. However, an upset Stan inadvertently causes further family tension when he requests to see Dean.
