It was only when Michael was taken to hospital in 2012, his body shutting down and his organs failing, that the family realised exactly what was happening. Later, Iain was given a bundle of letters that had been carefully-saved and tucked away in a drawer - the letters he had written to Michael regularly from the autumn of 2007 when he went to university. Dear Michael, Love Dad is a collection of these letters coupled with extracts from Michael's daily diaries from The Priory and behind-the-scenes commentary; exploring the story of a son's descent, a father's ignorance and stupidity, and a once joyous family almost torn apart by tragedy."@en ;
