Short Stories

The Last Walk

The Last Walk / CF Creative Space

It started as a dare – a simple boredom buster to keep the hospital blues at bay.
Now the stakes are higher and it’s time to complete the walk one last time.

“The Last Walk” set in the early 90s, is a celebration of the special friendships that people with Cystic Fibrosis share. The character of Saanvi is a nod to all those fabulous nurses from B12 who understood that bond and also actively participated in the shenanigans that made hospitals stays far more lively than they should have been.
