I've just heard the very sad news that Prince has lost his battle with cancer. Here's an extract from Graham's blog of yesterday:
"Prince was put to sleep earlier today. He'd had enough. He was so uncomfortable because of his cystitis that he couldn't lie down or sleep properly. He was terribly lame. He'd also started to get some unpleasant side effects from the Epirubicin that he had on Wednesday - he was depressed, and the most significant message of all - he wouldn't eat.
Yes, he could have been hospitalised and fed via a drip. He's been through enough though, and I knew he didn't want to go through any more.
I feel like my heart has been ripped from my body. I'm scared of life without him physically being here. But I know he'll always be with me on a higher level, and I get a huge amount of comfort from that."
Why not leave Graham a message of condolence - click here to go to their blog.
He dedicated himself to Prince's battle, giving up his job - the void that Prince now leaves is almost unimaginable.
I'm sure Prince knew how much he was loved and how hard it was for Graham to take the brave decision to let him go.
He couldn't have fought any harder to save him.
