Son bids to help hospice
A DOTING son was to climb to the top of the UK’s highest summit to raise money for the hospice which helped grant his mum’s final wish.
Shona Mullen, 59, passed away on March 5 after a long battle with bone marrow cancer myeloma.
Son Scott Mullen, 27, and his wife Aileen, 29, were expecting their first child – and Shona was the only one in the family to know the sex of the baby.
In a touching gesture, the couple asked the sonographer who performed the 20-week baby scan to write the gender on a card which was sealed in an envelope. They then took the message to the St Andrew’s Hospice in Airdrie, where Shona was being cared for, and nurse Frances Kelly read the important news about her first grandchild after they left the room. Shona died the next day.
