Deborah still insists on cooking for her family, including her son Hugo, 14, and daughter Elouise, 12, with the help of her husband, Sebastien Bowen.
She said: “I find cooking really therapeutic at the moment, not that I ever actually eat the food.
“I am painfully slow at everything, but Dad just patiently helps. The other night cooking fajitas took about an hour and a half, when it should’ve taken 30 minutes.”
Since being told there was nothing that could be done for her, Deborah did not let this put her down as she continued her fundraising efforts.
