COURAGE comes in many guises but there are few as brave as Kate Granger.
Although she has a terminal illness she is the embodiment of that most English of reactions – keep calm and carry on.
She is continuing to work and as a doctor she is an absolute inspiration to others.
She has made a massive decision to give up on intrusive chemotherapy and make the best of life in the time she has left.
The way she is dealing with what is happening to her will undoubtedly be a calming influence on those around her – both family and friends – who will be finding this an exceptionally traumatic time.
But what is even more remarkable is that she is only thinking of others and has challenged herself and husband Chris to raise £50,000 for the Yorkshire Cancer Centre with a huge chunk of this money coming from sales of her books The Other Side and The Bright Side, which tell her moving story.
With books from so-called celebrities and their often shallow lives filling bookshop shelves, Kate’s book puts them all into perspective ... and well into the shade.
Live each day as though it may be your last and you’ll make the most of life.
Everyone can learn from Kate.
