With a grim prognosis, Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) is scheduled to leave the hospital and return to her EastEnders home, but things are only about to get worse.
After a horrific episode, Lola was found to have an inoperable brain tumour, which she subsequently learnt was the cause of her condition.
She had an MRI scan after receiving months of life-extending therapy because she was fading out and having memory problems.
When she later learned she only had six months to live, she was horrified and was forced to tell her family in heartbreaking circumstances.
In following scenes, Lola discovers that her speech and movement are affected after falling outside the gym.
Family members who are worried about her transport her to the hospital, where she is tragically informed that her palliative chemotherapy treatment has failed.
Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden), who is having trouble accepting Lola’s diagnosis, expresses his fears that she shouldn’t be leaving the hospital while her husband Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) gets ready for her to go home.
Ben is ‘in denial’ about Lola’s prognosis, according to actor Max Bowden.
Lola is one of the only individuals in his life who has been able to manage him in terms of his mental health, his bad judgement, and the subliminal reminder of his parental responsibilities. He disclosed.
It’s a difficult scenario for him since he feels somewhat less like a father and more out of the loop as a result of Lexi’s adoption going place with Jay.
When Lola eventually makes it home, she is welcomed by the people of Walford, who are all ready to unite and support the family.
The fact that Lola’s speech is getting worse makes her feel depressed despite the warm welcome.
The truth of her diagnosis starts to set in when she notices that her speech is getting more slurred.
She declines to meet Janet or William because she is depressed, upsetting Honey Mitchell (Emma Barton).
Will Lola let her family support her as the end draws closer?
