Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Ivan and David in their last poignant picture together”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Cradling his beloved son in his arms, this is the last photograph taken of David Cameron with six-year-old Ivan before the youngster died.

The previously unreleased image of the former Prime Minister and his first-born child sledging near their home in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, can be revealed ahead of the publication of Cameron’s memoir.

In it, he describes the loss of his child as ‘almost too painful to relate to, even to recall’. The photograph is thought to have been taken just three days before Ivan, who was born with extremely rare Ohtahara syndrome, was suddenly taken ill overnight and died on February 25, 2009.

Ivan’s condition, a form of severe epilepsy, meant he could suffer up to 30 seizures a day. He also had cerebral palsy.
