How could my big, strong TV star husband just wither away? Widow of Spartacus star Andy Whitfield reveals the heartache behind his death from cancer
…The hiatus was short-lived. By Andy’s sixth radiotherapy session in July, he was in agony. ‘He had become so weak he couldn’t climb the stairs to our apartment. He had to stay in a hospice for a week,’ says Vashti. Three days before his death, drifting in and out of consciousness, Andy returned to the hospice.
‘To me, he had already gone. He rallied enough to say goodbye to the children. It took everything he had to sit up and pull them on to his knee then say goodbye. That’s when he spoke of the butterfly.
‘Then he turned to me and said, “That’s all I can do now” and I had to take them away.’
