Lara Bingle mourns father’s death with ‘Wish you were here’ tattooMay 11th, 2009 - 5:17 pm ICT by ANI
Melbourne, May 11 (ANI): Aussie model Lara Bingle has been so affected by her father Graham’s death last year that she has had a “Wish you were here” tattoo inked on her wrist.
Bingle’s father had passed away on May 10, 2008, following a prolonged battle with liver and pancreatic cancer, reports the Daily Telegraph.
Mother’s Day was overshadowed by the first anniversary of her father’s death, and she is believed to have spent the day by her mother Sharon’s side.
The 21-year-old had previously admitted that her father’s death had cast a cloud over her wedding to Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke because she didn’t know who would give her away.
And now she wants to try and prevent others from losing their loved ones unexpectedly, and, as per Confidential, she will this week be announced as a leading ambassador for a cancer support group, urging people to get regular check-ups after her father went undiagnosed for five years.
About 90 per cent of cancer sufferers who are diagnosed early survive the disease. (ANI)
