My friend Sally Becker emailed me yesterday evening saying that she had written an article in today’s UK press saying: I don’t know whether you'll approve. Sally is an extraordinary woman and as most of you know she was one of the six people honoured at the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games caring in the Olympic flag into the stadium. She is known as the Angel of Mostar for her work as a charity volunteer saving hundreds of lives in war-torn Bosnia. Four months ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy, but she is refusing all further treatment. Here, she explains why she's taken this decision.
