David is an inspirational, 28 year old, who, despite losing his sight when he was seven and recently undergoing a heart transplant, has been involved in many fund raising for organisations such as Guide Dogs for the Blind, Victim support Groups and St Johns Ambulance. After the transplant, he had to learn how to walk again because his muscles became so weak; however he continues to work tirelessly for others less fortunate than himself. I have only known David for a few months during the time he has been attending cardiac rehabilitation sessions. His determination, attitude and good sense of humour have been a shining example to us all. With the help of a wonderful supporting family, he is achieving his goals and is beginning to live a full and active life again. He is an extremely deserving person and should be given the chance to carry the Olympic torch.
