Bickmore is an inspiration to people who have suffered brain cancer. This is due to her husband dying after suffering brain cancer. It really affected her and her son, Oliver. In doing so, she is an inspiration for others and has created an organisation titled Carrie's Beanies 4 Brain Cancer where all proceeds go to research towards brain cancer. They have surpassed their initial amount of one million dollars in donations to understand and, furthermore, kill the deadly disease. She inspires me to stand up for what I believe in and never give up.
