It is with a great deal of sadness and a heavy heart that on behalf of the " Justice 4 Linda Lewis Campaign" I have to inform you that earlier this afternoon Mrs Helen Hulse who has been with Linda from the very beginning of her fight passed away peacefully at home after a short battle with cancer.
As a group our deepest sympathies go out to Bevan , Daniel, Huw and the rest of Helens family.
Helen was an inspiration to us all, especially Linda who looked upon Helen as a sister and a constant channel of support.
Helen was a very special person as many of the people involved in Linda's fight for justice are but what made Helen exceptional was that Helen was actually Linda's daughters Schoolteacher.
Seventeen years ago Helen knocked on Linda's door to ask how her daughter was.
For seventeen years she and her husband Bevan have been at Linda and the families side , offering support , writing letters , travelling the country and doing everything that they possibly could to right this very serious wrong.
Let's not forget that as Linda's daughters Schoolteacher she would have been the first to recognise any family problem or problems that the child might have been having outside of school.
There were none and she recognised that there was a genuine illness and supported the families efforts to get the child fit and well again.
This is obviously in total contrast to lies and lunacy that was being spewed out by Members of the Welsh Assembly Government, Certain Doctors and Social Services.
Helen was also a very brave woman.
At the time when many were burying their heads in the sand and refusing to get involved in Linda's case for fear of reprisals or losing their jobs Helen stood firm despite many threats, always at Linda's side.
Never once did Helen waiver.
RIP Helen Hulse - A Very Special Person - Always In Our Hearts.
