NZWW talks to Coronation Street‘s Kym Marsh (Michelle Connor) who lost her premature son Archie in February. “Whatever hardship I experience in my life, I know I can get through. It’s been a tough old struggle, but you have to try and try and try – and you do come through it. Going back to work is the right thing to do after any rough time – obviously not straightaway, but you do have to go back. Being on the Street has helped me tremendously to return to some kind of normality and I’m really grateful to everyone I work with for that. They’ve all been so kind and have given me so much support and understanding. There have been occasions when I’ve been at rock bottom, but my greatest inspiration is my family. The kids have been a great support and they’re so grateful for the life we all have that it makes everything worthwhile.”
