Fred’s diagnosis in July 2019 changed our lives overnight. Our happy, slightly chaotic and rowdy family had to adapt to life with a poorly child. The following nine months would see more determination, hope and heartbreak than we knew was possible.
With his death, our family was forever broken, and now we try to put ourselves back together again.
Throughout this time, we have found solace and strength from people who are learning to live with grief and sadness, as well as those who want to understand and listen as much as they can, so that they can be the pillars we lean upon.
Don’t Look Down was inspired by Fred’s passion for life, in all its reckless joy, but also perfectly encapsulates how we try to deal with our life now – one foot in front of each other, slowly, thoughtfully, eyes forward.
