Former RAF policewoman Ann Hughes was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2007. She was just 36 and it meant she had to leave the RAF after 20 years' service.
Her husband Mick, an RAF fireman, left his job to care for Ann, and their daughter Lauren, which put the family in a difficult position. They were faced with homelessness and financial hardship, having to leave married quarters and without jobs.
Not knowing where to turn, as Ann puts it "the Benevolent Fund stepped in and saved us" by giving them a place to live for as long as they need it.
Watch and listen to Ann and Mick's story.
