BBC interviews for Dear Millie author


Marco Previero and family

The author of Dear Millie, the inspirational true story of a young girl’s fight with cancer, has been interviewed by the BBC over the Easter weekend.

Marco Previero, pictured above with wife Vanessa and daughter Millie, appeared on BBC Radio Kent and BBC Radio Surrey last Saturday, April 4, to speak about the book, newly published through Matador  and written in support of Great Ormond Stree Hospital.

He spoke to presenters Pat Marsh and Erika North during the Saturday Show on BBC Radio Kent, and James Cannon on BBC Radio Surrey, about his daughter’s moving story.

Little Millie, now aged nine, was rushed to hospital after losing complete vision in her right eye, and most in her left one, where an MRI scan showed a tumour the ‘size of a golf ball’ on her brain. She was admitted to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) where experts informed the family that there was only a two in three chance she would pull through.

After a number of high-risk operations to the brain, and seven months of cancer treatment, Millie has been in remission since November 2013, and is on the road to recovery.

Dear Millie is dad Marco’s emotional diary of events. It is available now, priced £9.99. Complimentary review copies are still available through Palamedes PR.
