Louise Bunting is a mother in Northern Ireland whose daughter Rebekah was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a little known and particulatly aggressive form of brain cancer. 

Louise is grateful to her community of friends, and to the Children's Hospice in her area who supported her daughter and all the family through the heart-wrenching experience of her daughter's last days.

Since her daughter's death, Louise and her friends have raised nearly 10,000 UK pounds to support the hospice and help other families through serious illness.

Mike and Joyce speak with Louise about her experience, about DIPG, and about turning her grief and that of her family and friends into positive action, passing forward the kindness that was shown to them.
