My husband and I met in South Africa. We moved back to the UK over 20 years ago with our children.
Muscular Dystrophy has been part of my life since our son was diagnosed at the age of 7, in South Africa, with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. I became his full-time carer and the Centre became part of his regular routine.
I have a daughter and a granddaughter, who live with us, and it was on my daughter’s suggestion that I start volunteering at the centre in a way to get me out and about and as the saying goes “the rest is history”.
I have worked in an office environment for 25 plus years.
