Simon believes Emma's diagnosis at 13 could have been the start of her recovery

Emma was placed in a queue for a bed in a unit for treatment

"One woman commented quite recently on Facebook about what an incredible person Emma had been to her, how she taught her, how she'd helped her," said Simon

"We could have just given up on careers or hopes in life at any point because we had the excuse of Emma and what we went through," said Simon, who has a new partner, Wendy

Simon is already working with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) and wants to see professional training for families - "people like myself who have the time, motive and opportunity to do something with these sufferers where the waiting list for doctors is too long" - to help support their loves ones through the illness and recovery
