Irene Jesshop from Lowestoft in Suffolk

“My wonderful mum Irene recently celebrated her 94th birthday.

“She worked hard during the Second World War a munitions factory in London, and she's worked hard all her life. She was left a widow when only 42-years-old and brought my sister and me up alone.

“The last couple of years have been hard for her health wise. Has had cancer and two lots of radiotherapy. Has also suffered a major heart attack, has artificial hips and severe arthritis with very limited mobility, but still keeps positive and always cheerful and never moans about her lot. She is supported by wonderful carers.

“She is our rock, in good and bad times, and always supported us in every way. Her sense of humour, positive thinking and outlook keeps her going and told us she is going to make 100 years.

“She is such a wonderful person and a perfect role model. It is now time for us to spoil her.”

“I cannot walk around very much or very far without some pain so use a wheelchair when out and about.

“He has pushed me many miles over these two years including holidays abroad and cruising, but he never complains.
