She was just an ordinary forty-something year-old woman, who was determined to live life to the full. Jane Tomlinson died yesterday, seven years after she'd been told that her breast cancer had returned, it was terminal and she had less than six months to live.
Jane refused to say die (literally) and raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for cancer research. She was a brave woman who deserves to be mourned by the nation.
The BBC says it much better than I can. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/2585103.stm
Fare thee well Jane. May you rest in peace.
