National Bereaved Parents Day 2021

Jeannette's story

My son, Mark Daniels, was stolen by cancer a mere 7 weeks after diagnosis, aged 35. There was still so much I wanted to say to him and still do. So I write letters to him in exercise books. Just a page or 2 every few days; words of love, sadness, old memories shared and new memories made since he was taken that we couldn't physically share. 11 books so far.

When I need to reach out to touch him or give him a hug I have 2 memory bears made from his shirts.

Jeannette, Mark's mum
