Lucy Watts(MBE)

I'm Lucy, I'm 22 years old, and I have a genetic disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome with life-limiting (life-shortening) complications and it has also left me disabled (wheelchair bound) since I was 14. I am a writer, speaker, charity Ambassador and Trustee, blogger, patient leader and spokesperson and I have appeared in filmed and recorded work including on TV and radio such as BBC Radio 4's The Listening Project and a BBC Three documentary on digital legacies, as well as in videos that have been played at conferences across the UK and indeed all over the world, from Buenos Aires to Asia. My charity work is my life, allowing me to give back and contribute to society, make a difference and use my knowledge and experiences constructively to benefit others. For my charity work, I was appointed a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the Queen's New Year Honours 2016 for my Services to Young People with Disabilities.

Lucy Watts and Molly Friends for life 2014

Winners of Friends for Life 2014

I nominated Molly for the Friends for Life competition at Crufts, the world's biggest dog show, and in January 2014 we found out we were one of five finalists. We went to the Kennel Club headquarters to launch the competition on the 18th February and Crufts itself came up thick and fast. We had an amazing weekend, and the British public really got behind us, voting us winners of Friends for Life 2014. It was a whirlwind of media requests after that, with newspapers and websites around the world publishing the story, and we appeared on The Alan Titchmarsh Show and Look East. It was truly magical, something we will never forget. And less than 2 months later, Molly was awarded a Dogs Today Medal.
