Becky's compassion and kindness to others is evident to everyone who meets her, in both her role as a nurse and as a friend/family member. She has had her fair share of heartache over the years - and here is not the place to list all the sadness (after all we all have to face difficulties and challenges in our lives). What makes Becky special is that despite adversity, she still manages to help and support others all the time. Her generosity to others is often not that obvious, it is just something that comes naturally to Becky. Recently she amazed us all. Her baby daughter died at ten weeks old, so she took up amateur running as a sort of therapy. Time passed, and then she decided to step up to the challenge of running the London Marathon. Not only did she run the entire marathon - no walking for her - but she raised over £5000 for South West Hospice which hopes to provide support and care for parents who sadly have a sick child; there is no children's' hospice in Cornwall at present. This was an incredible achievement as I am sure the memories and sadness were acute during the lead up to and the actual marathon, but is also testament to Becky's commitment to putting others first, and helping make others' happier in their lives.
