"Having lost my beloved sister-in-law Laura to breast cancer I have been determined to be vocal about the need for support for this and do all I can to help.
Stuart Sweeting, a long time associate, asked me to present at the Future Dreams charity concert in 2011 when sadly both the founders Sylvie Henry and her daughter Danielle Leslie passed away from this terrible disease. I am proud to be an ambassador for the 10th Anniversary of Future Dreams and hope that within the next 10 years, this disease can be eradicated or the very least held at bay."
