Every mum is proud of her daughter and I am no exception to this rule. My daughter, Naomi, has strived to achieve her best all her life, particularly as a gymnast. Her continuous hard work is reflected in her gymnastic achievements and academic results. Despite injury as a teenager, Naomi continued to contribute to gymnastics as a coach where she endeavoured to enhance the ability and success in those she taught. At just 23 years old, Naomi was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. Her life didn't stop. Naomi persevered through her chemotherapy treatment teaching gymnastics on her good days and at the very least smiling to those around her on her worst. On many occasions I witnessed Naomi assuring friends and family that she would get better; she remained consistently positive throughout her treatment. Furthermore, Naomi signed up for a 280mile charity cycle in China. When she was sick in bed she was planning fundraising events and when on her feet she was implementing them. Soon after Naomi went into remission she was out on her bike training for the cycle, which took place in May 2011. Many of us believed she wouldn't be well enough to take part but she proved she was stronger and more determined than we ever thought possible and she successfully completed the route. Her passion for sport, love for life, and motivation to help those around her shines through everyday. Naomi is truly inspirational and best of all she is my daughter.
