Christine Baldwin Art Foundation
For the Fight Against Myeloma
My darling wife Christine passed away at Sue Ryder Hospice, Leckhampton, Cheltenham, on 20th July 2022 aged 56 from Multiple Myeloma, leaving a beautiful 14 year old daughter Hannah without a mummy.
Chris always supported me with my art, calling it my "Happy Place", and without her confidence in me there would not be a Papilios Creative.
In her name I have decided to create The Christine Baldwin Art Foundation to help raise funds to find a permanent cure for this awful disease. My wife knew that her battle against this disease would ultimately be lost, but she fought for over 7 years, and showed incredible courage and bravery.
I hope now to use my art and sell prints, merchandise etc. with all profits going towards research into the treatment for Myeloma in the UK. One of Chris' favourite flowers was the freesia with purple her favourite colour, so I have painted it and adopted it as the foundation emblem. Prints are available to buy on this page.
Only in it's infancy, but I hope to expand the foundation into further activities in the future, but my wife's passing is still very raw for me and the family, so little steps at the moment.
I also fully support The Sue Ryder Hospice, and thank them for looking after Chris during her final days. We cannot thank them enough for their tenderness and support at our most difficult of times.
