Julie is a teacher who has had to overcome numerous life challenges: a divorce, two bouts of cancer, and two redundancies. She is currently in her early sixties but she will not receive her pension until she is sixty-six.
In 2010 I was the happiest girl alive. I had my wonderful partner and two perfect children: Jak, then five, and Ellie, two. However, in August 2010 our lives were turned upside down when my daughter contracted meningitis.
