BATTLE
Forced to withdraw from the Great Britain team's EuroBasket qualifiers in 2014, announcing she has Type 1 diabetes. "The hardest thing was admitting it. I hate the thought of it beating me and it won’t. In the past I have coped with it and played with high levels (blood sugar) even though it wasn’t good for me. But now I feel like I need to sort it out." (manchestereveningnews.co.uk, 9 May 2014)
