Last updated at 12:42, Monday, 26 March 2012
SUFFERING from epilepsy hasn’t stopped Hedley-on-the-Hill’s Jen Jones realising her dreams.
Diagnosed two-and-a-half years ago, she gained straight ‘A’ grades in her A-levels, was Northumberland County Hockey captain and is now studying sport science at Loughborough University. She was nominated by her proud mum.
Jen (18) said: “I volunteer at a care home in Wallsend, so the fact I’ll be carrying the torch through Wallsend on June 15 is particularly poignant.”
