I had notification today that I have been nominated to carry the Olympic torch!
The nomination comes from one of the theatre sisters at the John Radcliffe Hospital where I had been working when I found out that I had lung cancer. I didn't realise I had made such an impression on them as I had only been there 5 months.
I am really touched and very excited, I don't for one minute think I'll be picked but anyone who knows me knows how much I love the athletics on TV - I never miss any meeting and have been watching the olympics since Olga Korbut won all those medals in the Munich Olympics of 1972! I always cry with emotion when anyone wins a medal (I just think of how proud they are and their country). I have never been any good myself, only ever winning the 'thread the needle' race at junior shcool purely because I was good at sewing lol.
Keep your fingers crossed folks, perhaps this can be a way of raising awareness! X
