    My lovely niece, who is in pallative care, has been chosen to carry the Olympic Torch through Swansea in May. I'm so proud I'm fit to burst. She's a bit of nutter in her electric wheelchair, I hope you doesn't take out any innocent spectators on the way.

    The other great news that her mother booked her 18th birthday party. I have to be honest this is a miracle as we didn't expect her to live this long. A couple of years ago she died on a weekly basis and although the doctors can't actually say why she is so ill they have tried all sorts of treatments. The latest one seems to be helping, although it won't save her life it does seem to be prolonging it. She really is an amazing young woman who is so positive, despite her pain scale being at 8 - 9 every day. Amy plans her life as though she is going to live a normal life. In her room is a plaque that says, "don't count the days, make the days count". I think this is something we should all live by.

    Well done Amy Claire.

    Oh Sam huge congraulations to Amy Claire

    What a brave and wonderful young woman to be in so much pain and to have such a positive outlook.

    I wish her all the luck in the world and you must get a photo of her with the Torch for us all to see

    Thank you so much for sharing this with us









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
