The mother of one of band members of the Pop group, One Direction, Louis Tomlinson, has lost his mum, Johannah Deakin, to leukaemia at the age of 42-year-old. Ms. Deakin who was diagnosed with the disease earlier this year, died in the morning of Wednesday, 7th Dec. Her family have released a statement to this effect. The statement read:
“It is with immeasurable sadness that Johannah Deakin’s family said goodbye to Johannah in the early hours of Wednesday 7th December 2016. Earlier this year Johannah was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of leukaemia that required immediate and continuous treatment. We respectfully request that the family are given time and space to grieve in private.”
