Laura Boyd is the second name that I can reveal who has come on board the new fundraising book for Beating Bowel Cancer. I am really pleased that she agreed to be in this one as I almost managed to get her for the Lives & Times book. Laura works on STV as an entertainment reporter and also works as a showbiz producer. She also sings in a band! She has been living with leukemia since 2009 and she has just celebrated her 7 year cancerversary still being alive.
So at some point I shall be making a trip up to Scotland to meet Laura and find out a lot more about her story and of course what the first record she bought was?
Today, sadly, we lay Mum to rest after she lost her long 4 year fight with bowel cancer 3 weeks ago. Her funeral is being held at Littlewick Green near Maidenhead where her many friends from all walks of her life will join us to celebrate her wonderful life.
