Sally is a truly inspirational lady. She was a very active fit lady when she was younger, climbing mountains and even getting engaged at Everest Base Camp! She took up nursing as a career, got married and had three children Then sadly developed MS which eventually left her confined to a wheelchair with limited mobility. She suffered from severe post-natal depression, but pulled herself out of that. One of her daughters became her carer and her youngest child was diagnosed with autism. When things became really bad for her, she applied for and was given a Canine Partners assistance dog called Harmony. Harmony has taken on the role of her carer allowing Sally to become independent again, and was the inspiration for Sally to attempt to be the first disabled person to climb Ben Nevis unaided last year. She and Harmony made it half way up before her special wheelchair gave up. However, she is attempting it again this year and is determined to get to the top. Sally has seen her life change so much since having Harmony that she has written a book about her life. She has also become a motivational speaker for companies and organisations, encouraging people to overcome even the most difficult challenge. Sally spends a lot of her spare time fundraising for Canine Partners to thank them for the dog that turned her life around. She would be a wonderful ambassador for the 2012 Torch Bearing Journey.
