The backstory to A Winter’s Tale  incredible strength of character Freddie Mercury possessed. He wrote and recorded this song in beautiful Montreux when he was gravely ill in 1991. Kevin too possesses the most incredible strength of character I’ve ever personally witnessed. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about Kevin and marvel at his remarkable tenacity, all coupled with the most determined and positive outlook. Kevin is such a warrior, truly unparalleled. As he continues his fight to recover I hope all of his friends and followers will continue to be here for Kevin and his family. He will never give up and neither should we.

And to all who have generously contributed to the Kevin Babington Foundsation, thank you! All of your support is tremendously appreciated!

Thank you Kevin for inspiring us, motivating us and for showing us what real courage looks like. You’re one in a million. 💚🧡
