Joan’s Story:

In March 2016 Joan Blass was almost 92 years old, with severe vascular dementia and terminal cancer.  She was unable to make the simplest decision and never knew that she had remarried just five months before her death.

Joan’s daughter Daphne Franks tells the story of a secret marriage, a revoked will, an unmarked grave, grooming, gaslighting, a Private Member’s Bill and a campaign to highlight all the issues.  The Franks family hope to fill all the gaps so nothing like this will ever happen to another family in the future – because, as they have learned, it’s currently happening to many of our elderly and vulnerable and their families.

This story is “right up there amongst the most shocking we’ve come across in the ten years that we’ve been making this programme.” - Angela Rippon, Rip-Off Britain, BBC Television.

Daphne Franks, 66, is a teacher who has worked at Leeds Medical School for many years, teaching Communication Skills and other non-clinical courses. 

Daphne now lives in Skipton, North Yorkshire, with her husband Stephen and has recently become a very proud grandmother.
