Lucy Watts MBE is a 24 year old young adult with a progressive, life-limiting neuromuscular disease, causing complex medical needs. Lucy is a disability activist, patient leader and palliative care advocate, working both within the UK and on an international scale. Lucy received an MBE in 2016 for services to young people with disabilities.
I am delighted to become a Young Ambassador for Include Me TOO, an incredible charity and look forward to supporting them with their work, especially from a palliative care perspective. I hope Include Me TOO will continue their pioneering work and really ensure BAME children, young people and families have equal opportunities and access to care, including palliative care, from the point of diagnosis, as well as achieving the best quality of life possible.
