Following an MRI scan that revealed her palliative treatment had failed, Lola Pearce (Danielle Harold) just learned the heartbreaking news that she only has weeks to live.

Tragically, this indicated that Lola’s brain cancer had grown.

Lola was discharged from the hospital so she could spend her last days getting care at home, which made her feel more at peace.

Nurse Sonia Fowler (Natalie Cassidy), who understood that this would be a difficult time for Lola and her family, provided Jay Brown (Jamie Borthwick) the contact information for the local vicar Reverend Mills (Melanie Kilburn).

Though first he wasn’t sure whether or not to call her, a conversation with Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) about Peggy Mitchell’s dying days provided him the motivation to do so.

Later, Reverend Mills showed over and tried to help Lola make sense of her circumstances. Despite the fact that Lola acknowledged she didn’t feel as if she had much to be grateful for, she was open to hearing what the reverend had to say.

Reverend Mills shared her experience with losing her own companion and discussed how she found solace in the knowledge that Lola was surrounded by love and full of life when she passed away. She also acknowledged that Lola’s position must be terribly trying.

Reverend Mills assured Lola that she had nothing to worry as she indicated that she loved to think that there was an eternity or a heaven and that she saw death as the close of a chapter.

After their heartfelt conversation, Lola made a choice that she told Jay about.

She said that she want to get baptised so that she may one day reunite with her daughter Lexi (Isabella Brown).
