Paula is Katy’s mum. The day that Paula learned about Katy’s devastating diagnosis was the day that changed her life forever. Heartbroken just wasn’t strong enough of a word to describe the feeling of helplessness. Paula was quoted as saying “If we were on a shingle beach and I knew that the name of the doctor that could save Katy was underneath one of the stones I would find it” Paula campaigned long, hard and tirelessly to save her daughter’s life. There was no cure out there though. After Katy passed away Paula vowed to fight on so that she could fund the research into paediatric brain tumours to find the cure. Together with Katy’s dad Dave they continue the fight.
