It is a pleasure to nominate Amie for this honour. Amie is a patient of The Children's Hospital, Oxford which was officially opened in 2008 by The Queen. It is a child centred haven for the treatment of children suffering from all kinds of ill health . Amie was 10 when she was diagnosed with bone cancer and was treated on Kamran Ward. She suffered a relapse and required intensive treatment which almost claimed her life. Four years on, although in remission, her treatment continues with a host of significant medical problems. Her bone graft has failed nescessitating invasive and painful surgery and following infection has needed skin and muscle grafts leaving her with significant scaring on her torso and legs. It is hard to express just how massive the impact of the disease has been on her. However Amie is a wonderful young lady who is compassionate and empathetic towards others who suffer. She raises money for charities and rarely complains about her own struggles. She has all the characteristics of the atheletes - courage, determination and the desire and drive to do better despite the huge journey ahead. I believe Amie would be a tremendous torchbearer, representing all that the British Olympics wish to embody - personal courage, grit and triumph. I also believe that her fellow patients would want to be by her side, representing the spirit and calibre of our young people on treatment today - resiliant, strong, spirited and making the most of every day.
