Mums form strong friendship to fight children's lethal brain disease


Two devoted mothers have spoken movingly of the formidable friendship through which they have helped raise £75,000 to fund human trials of a cure for a cruel disease that is robbing their children - and just 200 other people worldwide - of a future. Introduced by email in January, their plans to meet in person in April were curtailed by Covid-19, yet, despite bonding mainly through Zoom video calls, Amy Sheridan-Hill, 41, and Ali Candy-Waters, 52, say their inspiring conversations and shared go-getting attitude has brought hope back into their lives.
