Sarah said: “When I lost my mom and my daughter lost a leg it impacted on our entire loved ones.

“We try out and dwell as typical existence as attainable but we cannot get on with our lives like that bus driver can after he walked out of prison.

“Every 5 months she demands a new leg and last year she couldn’t walk effectively for the yr. I’m working this marathon with a horrible discomfort in my leg since I lost half my calf muscle. I’m slowly regaining sensation in my foot, the working aids it.”

Mr Johnson additional: “I want Sarah and Victoria all the extremely very best with their Marathon. Their bravery, and in specific the bravery of Sarah’s daughter Pollyanna has been inspirational.”
