I would like to nominate my daughter who is 18 and a cancer survivor. So what, you may ask. When she was 14 she helped me look after my mother who had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. My mother had lived with us for 17 years and helped bring up our two children. As a nurse I could not let her be nursed in a hospice where she would have died earlier as she did not speak English. So I nursed her at home with the help of my husband and two children. Being the older child my daughter helped look after her so that I could nip out to the shops, bank or GP. She would do things like take her grandmother to the toilet, cleaned her afterwards and made sure that she was comfortable and safe. She also helped look after my son who was 11 at the time whilst all my time and energy was spent on looking after my mother. When my daughter was diagnosed with cancer she was the bravest child ever. She only cried once - scared when she was on the way to the theatre for her operation. I was the one falling apart whenever I could. She has a cheerful disposition and a very positive attitude to life and would light up the world with her smile. She had to drop out of her AS level studies due to her illness but has gone on to do her Diploma in Fashion Retail and is now applying to study in University. She may not get a University place but whatever happens I know that I and many close to us draw strength from her strength. Thank you very much for taking time to read this.
