My husband Nick is the most inspirational person in my life. Last year when I was diagnosed with advanced cancer, he really stepped up to the mark. He made sure our 3 small children were as unaffected as possible, he supported me and encouraged me everyday to fight. He would never allow me to feel sorry for myself and would always stay so positive and optimistic. When I lost my hair through the chemotherapy, he shaved his off, when my body became bloated with the steroids he would tell me I looked beautiful. He did this at the same time as working full time, helping to care for his mum who has a brain condition that has brought on premature dementia and strokes, volunteering every saturday as a football coach for over 100 children, volunteering on a tuesday at a club for the local children, getting involved with umpiring and scoring for our sons cricket team, being a school governor and the treasurer of the school PTA. He does all this selflessly because he wants to make a difference. He has run in 3 marathons and 2 triathlons, raising thousands for the stroke association and cancer research. This October he will be doing an overnight marathon with me for cancer research, because he wants to give back for the wonderful care I received. He is a man who believes we can all make a difference, and we' should' all make a difference. To know my husband, is to know the true meaning of being inspired and the beauty of seeing the difference we can all make in others lives.
