“The lady advocate for acceptance, self reliance and not giving up was the best speaker on positive behaviour and attitudes I’ve ever heard in my experience of 20+ years of IBD.”
“I asked Sam to give the lecture at the South Yorkshire Crohn’s and Colitis UK (CCUK) Autumn 2014 meeting and she was more than happy to oblige.  The old girl didn’t let me down.  The lecture covered her operations, positive body image and, as always, the continued support of her husband.  Her energy is boundless and her positivity is infectious – it gave people hope, even those experiencing different problems.  Just by being in a room Sam makes people feel happier.”
“Read her blog.  Arrange for her to speak to your group.  Follow her story.  You won’t be disappointed!”
“I would like to pass on our huge thanks for being part of Saturdays international women’s day event,  I have heard great comments about the whole day.”
