“I first met Steph through the Willow Foundation in 2010 when she was just 18 years old and in remission. What struck me on a first meeting was her beauty both inside and out. She was also incredibly funny and I just didn’t expect that from someone fighting something so serious. She had the ability to find a joke in every situation and stayed so positive throughout her battle. Her family gave her the strength to carry on in very difficult times and she gave them just as much back. This foundation is typical of the selfless attitude Steph held – she was constantly thinking of how she could turn such a nightmare into dreams for others. We met on an arranged visit but I am proud to say she became my friend and I will support her wishes and the charity with all my heart”
