Ivan Cameron Dies

February 25, 2009

Ivan Cameron, six-year-old son and eldest child of Conservative Party leader David Cameron and his wife, Samantha, has died. He was born with severe Cerebral Palsy and epilepsy.

No matter what I think of David Cameron as a politician, I agree with Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who led condolences, that   The death of a child is a loss no parent should have to bear.

As you may know, I have mild CP myself and so hearing of anyone dying from this disability always hits me hard.  My thoughts are with the Cameron family at this extremely difficult time.

May Ivan watch over them and fill their lives with good health, happiness and deserved success.

    I completely agree with you as a mother who survived the loss of my son who also had CP and about whom I still find it hard to write in the past tense. Hearing about Cameron’s loss took me right back to the pain of it all. I didn’t know about Christopher Nolan’s death until I visited your website. He was a great inspiration to us in my struggle to get my son’s intelligence recognised at school. We even wrote to him asking if we could visit him in Ireland to see and learn from his method of communication.
