Here he writes about how her illness put unimaginable strains on the relationship with his wife and the loved ones around them and how as a family they coped and pulled together in the dark days after her death to discover a life that although very different from the one they had planned is happy.

Jon Nicholson lost his wife to osteosarcoma, a very rare form of bone cancer.

Emma died in 2004, just 14 months after being diagnosed.
