Tony said: “I’m over the moon with the fantastic response I have had to the book.
Absolutely scared stiff she was and as a parent not being able to tell her what she wants to hear broke my heart.
I urge people to think before doing this sort of daft act.
“The fact that proceeds from the book are being shared between St Catherine’s and two other very worthy local charities - Derian House and Baby Beat – is fantastic.
It is thanks to the work and support of generous people like Tony which helps us be there for local people when it matters most, to provide specialist palliative and end-of-life care, offering people the best possible quality of life, and providing emotional and spiritual support to patients and their loved ones.” • RSVP: By Invitation Only is on sale for £12.99.
