Athlete
    (February 21, 1964-September 3, 2007)
    Born in Wakefield, England, United Kingdom
    Diagnosed with incurable metastatic breast cancer (2000)
    Subsequently completed a full Ironman triathlon, two half Ironmans, three London Triathlons, three London Marathons and a New York Marathon
    Her cycling tour across the US for charity raised only a tenth of its goal (2006).
    She was criticized for spending time away from her children training and competing.
    Some breast cancer groups urged her to take a lower profile, suggesting she was setting an impossible standard for other cancer patients.
    She raised 1.5 million pounds for charity by competing in endurance events.
    Her doctors had expected her to die within a year after her diagnosis.
    She was the first person to compete in a marathon while undergoing chemotherapy.
    Her husband Mike said, 'It's really misleading to say that she's in some way neglected [our children], but frankly we don't mind it too much, as we know it simply isn't true.'
    She was voted Most Inspiration Woman in Britain (2003).
