I have terminal cancer and I am still me” 

Maxine summed up the Muscles team effort with the following comment,”I am so glad that I had the opportunity to meet you all and to introduce you to my family. I must say that, as a group, the generosity, goodwill and aura you bring will remain with me for ever”  WP_20150808_013
