Sara Challice gave up her career as a graphic designer to care for her husband for 13 years after he was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Following a stroke, he became bedbound and needed full-time nursing care; due to the pressure, Sara became both mentally and physically unwell. She then found new strategies to regain her health and enjoy life again, even whilst caring for a terminally ill husband. Sara also got involved with local and national charities and became a trustee for the neurological charity INS (Integrated Neurological Services). Since her husband’s death, Sara has been a frequent public speaker, helping transform the lives of carers, their health and well being; she continues to volunteer and fund raise to promote the well being of carers. She is much interviewed for media and podcasts about health and well being (see www.whocares4carers.com)
