Diagnosed at Christmas 2003, Hazel has fought and won the battle against leukaemia with a life saving bone marrow transplant from her brother. She is now well and tirelessly campaigning and supporting charitable work as the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research head of volunteer fundraisers for Milton Keynes. She is an inspiration not only to me but all the families she supports who have the heartbreaking news that their loved one has been diagnosed with cancer. I do not have enough space to give details of all the wonderful work she has done. They include running in a half marathon, overland travel to China, public speaking and shaking collection buckets. She has become well known for fundraising dressed as a banana. Hazel truly deserves a chance to carry the torch for 2012 as she is a one in a million.
