Deborah James is a bowel cancer patient. Having already beaten it once she is now fighting this awful illness for a second time. I came across Deborah a year or so ago on social media around the same time I'd published the Lives & Times book. I followed her blog which is well worth looking at, and she very kindly bought a copy of the book. When it came to doing this new fundraising book for the Beating Bowel Cancer charity I was very keen to have Deborah on board, so I was really happy when she agreed to do it. She is a wonderfully positive and inspiring individual, and has recently set up her own business. I am very much looking forward to meeting her in person.
