Couple who lost both children to illness honour son’s wish by fostering

A couple who lost both their children to rare illnesses have become foster parents to honour one of their son's final wishes. Karen and Paul Ledsham, from St Helens, said fostering has given them a purpose again after daughter Abigail and son Harrison died of separate rare conditions at the ages of one and 12 respectively. The idea of fostering came from Harrison when his sister was unwell with a disorder that attacks the nervous system.
