That's a difficult question for me as there are many people that have played a part in one way or another: My Husband who continues to support me over the years we have been together since we were 14. For his love and admiration to me and for is friendship and love for 30 years . For a friend Natalie Hawes who made me think differently about life after her death after her fight with leukaemia. She made me think never to not tell people how you feel about them as its important to tell them. when they are gone they don't know.

5. What is the best compliment you have ever received?
Wow I'm unsure I think I have had many comments that have been lovely over the years but one thing I remember is whilst I didn't like myself as a person. My friend who passed away whilst in my teens, Natalie Hawes told her mum "she wanted to be like me" That was something through my childhood I had never expected someone to say as I had a low opinion of myself as a child. I thank all the lovely people around the world and Lizzie for the lovely words she has passed to me. My Friend Polly for the many words that have been exchanged over the years. Also whilst in hospital even though I struggled I was always amazed by the exchange of kind words said to me there from Katherine Howarth a young girl Struggling with illness. Also caring words recently of staff from the London Hospital and the wonderful words of support. For my very own doctor who has supported me with kind words from a professional prospective during my illness. For my husband who should really be first in the thought about compliments who never fails to compliment everyday since we have been together.
