Sad update on Featureworld interviewee…


In July I was thrilled that interviewee Claire Faulkner and her husband were so delighted with my story in WOMAN’S OWN magazine.

Claire Faulkner

Happy on their wedding day...

Claire, a divorced mum of two had been battling breast cancer when she met Chris. Everything seemed perfect when he proposed but shortly after she was fitted for her wedding dress, she discovered the cancer had returned.

Despite this, in October 2010, the couple went ahead with their wedding and as this picture shows, it was truly a wonderful day. Since then the cancer spread further. The couple simply could not contemplate the worse and began fund-raising for treatment in the US they believed could save Claire’s life. In August she and Chris got to the States for this treatment and although they were going through such a difficult time, Chris told me it was a wonderful experience.

However, it seems this treatment came too late to help as on her return, Claire got worse and last week, on 21st September, Claire passed away.

Chris says: “Both myself and Claire were very grateful for all your help along the incredibly difficult journey that we have had.”

I am just pleased that through Featureworld, Chris has a wonderful cutting from Woman’s Own magazine to look back on.
