My sister. Lost but not forgotten. You always remind me to go on living and do things out of my comfort zone!!


My beautiful little sister Holly  was diagnosed with Lupus when she was just 18, at the beginning of her life as a young woman...just two months away from her 20th birthday Holly left us...I feel like Lupus took her away from us...and I still dont understand it!?

Losing her and trying to make sense of things made me remember what it was like to be a teenager and how, even though I was healthy I still felt isolated and lonely and that its a very common thing for teenagers to go through!

But she had a complex illness an uncontrollable illness, and she had to deal with what it did to her body and her mind. It dawned on me that there must be millions of teens in the world who are diagnosed with a terrible illness or whos family members are sick and how difficult it is to be a teen and be strong with such an epic epic situation, I wondered if there was enough support out there, especially in rural areas like where my family come from....where is the help?..and is it presented in a way that teenagers feel comfortable accepting?...I would like to help raise money to go towards a charity that will help teens.

So my wonderful beautiful cheery chirpy anything goes darling Holly...I'm going to ride my bike 40 miles with loads of other women and see what happens!


To all my gorgeous friends and family, dont worry if you can't afford more than a quid..seriously every little helps.


rock on in Hollys memory xxxxx
