The recipient of this issue’s bouquet is Judy Russell of Belper (pictured on the right). She was nominated by
Mrs Jill Bilbie also of Belper.
Here’s what Jill had to say:
“I would like to nominate my twin sister Judy Russell. Judy is a tremendous support to me. I was diagnosed with cancer in January 2008 and began 6 months intensive chemotherapy on 1 February. During that time I was very poorly suffering the very bad side effects this treatment brings, a very low self esteem, depressed and some days didn’t want to live. Judy prepared me food, washed, ironed and cleaned, she even did some decorating! Nothing is troublesome night or day. Along with my care, she childminds for her goddaughter. Thank you Judy, you are precious.” Jill Bilbie, Belper
