Interview with Mark Lemon

Posted by Helen Dukes on


Today and yesterday Lottie & I lost 2 very special Dad's  - within the same two days - 10 years apart.

My daughter Lottie lost her Dad to Melanoma cancer when she was just 3 and a half years old. I was faced not only with losing my partner but trying to muddle through how I would know what to say to Lottie, how to say it and what she needed to hear. As a Mum all you want for your kids is for them to be happy & feel secure Winston's wish gave me many solutions to what I was facing and they really helped...
