I was commissioned by the NHS to create cards to be given out to parents who have recently lost children in hospital, offering support, guidance and help during the most heartbreaking and devastating of times. I was so grateful to be given the chance to make something that could give - even if it is the teeny tiny-est - bit of hope, guidance and support during the darkest of days. Hopefully not many people will need to see them in real life, but I wanted to share them here.
