Wife, Mother and Carer, .
Nicola is a writer, artist and inspirational speaker on the subjects of sepsis, resilience and the carer’s experience. After spending the 1980’s and 90’s getting a PhD and setting up and running her own video production company, Nicola was on the point of having a much longed-for career break to look after her daughter Grace (3) and son Freddy, due in January 2000. Instead Tom succumbed to sepsis and Nic instantly became his full-time carer. In 2016 Nic and Tom’s story was made into a feature film, Starfish, she was played by Joanne Froggat and Tom was played by Tom Riley.
