  • Diana, 32, from Bognor Regis, Sussex tells us why her mum deserved to win a day’s pampering.

    One of my strongest childhood memories is of Mum patting my younger sister Sam’s back, helping to clear her airwaves. Sam was born with cystic fibrosis and needed this treatment several times a day, along with frequent hospital trips. But Mum never complained; all she wanted was for Sammy to have a normal life.

    Sam never let her condition stop her from enjoying herself – she wanted just the same as any other girl. She studied hard, made friends and went on to meet her boyfriend, fall in love and give birth to baby Tyler.

    Cystic fibrosis sufferers have a reduced life span, and sadly Sam passed away two years ago, when she was just 22 and Tyler was only 10 months old. It was a very difficult time but, despite her own grief, Mum kept the family going.

    At our first Christmas after losing Sam, she kept us all smiling, telling us that Sammy wouldn’t have wanted us to be unhappy. Tyler lives with his dad but amazingly Mum takes care of him every other weekend. She’s also planted a memory garden full of Sammy’s favourite flowers, so we’ll always have a place to go when we want to remember her.

    Losing Sam was devastating, and I have no idea how we would have got through it without Mum. So for everything you’ve done, thank you so much Mum, and I hope you enjoy your treat!

    When Diana told me I’d won, I couldn’t believe it. I never win anything! But I went from surprised to very excited in about ten seconds flat – I’ve never had a massage before. P&G has been so kind and treated me so wonderfully. And special thanks to Diana – I love you very much. Diana is so proud of her very special mum, Linda. Linda won a manicure and masage every month for a whole year! What a treat.
