Lisa was diagnosed with cervical cancer at the very young age of 30, Lisa has now been in remission for four years. I have nominated Lisa to be a torch carrier for recognition of all her charity work she does since being in remission. Lisa is the official mascot for Butterwick Hospice in Co Durham and Stockton. Lisa has raised thousands of pounds as a volunteer in return for the treatment she received when they cared for her during her illness. 'Bea' the butterwick hospice bumblebee even has her own facebook page, which Lisa keeps up to date on all the events at Butterwick and uploads photos of Bea on what she has been up to. Lisa's husband Andrew is always by her side as her Bea keeper! Lisa has campaigned for years to lower the age for smear tests and has even been to Downing Street four times to hand in petitions. She was also an ambassador for Cancer research UK. Lisa is also a youth group leader to over 40 children and in August 2011 she is to travel to Kenya to volunteer in a special needs school. She also works part time as an auxiliary nurse at North Tees hospital. Where she finds the time to go to work I'll never know! Lisa may not be sportswomen but to me is extremely inspirational to women and cancer sufferers/survivor's everywhere and deserves to carry the Olympic torch.
