Video: Belfast Telegraph Woman of the Year 2015 - Mum of the Year Joyce Craig

Inspirational Joyce Craig is Belfast Telegraph Mum of the Year 2015. Joyce has lost both a son and daughter in the last 4 years. She buried her precious daughter, Nicola, in 2011, who had a severe disability and then, last year, her healthy, talented and delightful son Michael, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

Tragically, Michael, who Joyce described and her “best friend” and “hero”, died in February this year. Joyce continues to give 24-hour care to her only surviving child, Christopher, who is severely disabled.

Even in the midst of heartbreak and devastation, Joyce has championed Marie Curie, creating awareness of the charity’s vital work.
