Angela Gorman, now 58yrs old and a nurse for more than 30yrs has been a neonatal nurse for nearly 21yrs and works as a Senior Sister in the Welsh Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Cardiff, caring for the sickest infants in Wales. She counts writing as one of her hobbies and loves reflective writing when events occur in one of the most emotioally charged areas of nursing. Her clinical colleagues respond positively to her use of words which include a renowned sense of humour. She is also a very experienced Trade Union Representative and managed to talk her union into taking on this cause, unusual in that unions usually support causes which are linked to other unions; npt so in this case. She has used her significant contacts and renowned powers of persuasion to raise thousands of pounds and donations of equipment, which have funded drugs and equipment for the hospital in Chad.
Angela has been married to Mike for 37yrs, has three children and three grandchildren. Her other hobbies include travelling and reading. She now describes herself as a Chad Bore!
