Helen is many things: 80's enthusiast, die hard Inspector Morse fan, marketing consultant, frustrated writer but above all, devoted wife and mother to two beautiful children. Her daughter Marigold was born with a unique genetic condition, trisomy 3q11 mosaicim and it is through her experiences with Marigold that Helen has found her voice as a blogger.
Helen writes to raise awareness and promote understanding of those affected by rare genetic conditions and to show the world that there is beauty and hope to be found in a genetic diagnosis.
Helen lives in South London with her husband and rock Sunil, her 7 year old son Harrison (who also deserves airtime for being the best big brother in the world) and of course, the wonderful Marigold herself.
