Martha had a brain haemorrhage in the womb at approximately 12 weeks leaving damage that meant she was expected to be severely disabled. Amazingly, her brain re-wired itself and all functions normally done in the left hemisphere were taken over by the right. She was born with only moderate hemiplegia and moderate learning problems. She became a determined, funny, kind and very caring young woman, but continued to have her own medical problems. She could not work but had wanted to be an actress. She had a vast collection of film and TV programmes on DVD. Her late father had played a really important part of her life. She adored her niece and nephew from the moment of their birth and loved being able to be a part of her Sister’s family too. Martha loved to travel, her favourite country was Mallorca and she took great interest in any new place.
