Michaelagh Broadbent lives in Edinburgh. She has recently written a children's book that is being published in June of this year, based on her son and her husband, who has a brain tumour.
In 2009 her husband was diagnosed with a brain tumour, which then recurred in 2015 when she was weeks pregnant with their second son, Alex. By the time he went for his repeat surgery in 2016, they faced the challenge of how to explain his tumour to their elder son, Harry, who was three at the time.
My Daddy Is My Superhero was inspired by her experience of helping her young son to understand and adjust to his dad's illness. It was written to help a child celebrate and commemorate a seriously ill or lost parent, and to help them to accept their eventual passing. She believes being able to hold on to positive memories is an important part of the grieving process, and this is what she has tried to achieve through her book.
My Daddy is My Superhero is published in June with all proceeds going to Maggie’s Edinburgh. The book can be preordered from Michaelagh’s website www.michaelaghbroadbent.co.uk
