I am delighted to see that my nine year old daughter Sheba Luckie has been selected as a finalist in the Young Carer category of the MS Society Awards 2016. Sheba has been a fantastic help to me and incredibly brave and loving during what have been some very challenging years. The awards take place on 27th April.

UPDATE ON THIS
There have been a few local news stories about this (and a few errors which have now been amended online). Unfortunately they left out my career.
There will be further updates in the coming days as the awards were on Wednesday. Sheba was a runner up but it was a lovely day and she got to meet some celebrities, Keep an eye out for coverage. I have also been photographically documenting my journey with MS and am looking to exhibit or publish this story at some point as a personal essay. Do get in touch if you are interested in seeing pics I have posted a couple below as a taster.
