Tonight I was joined by Phoenix98FM’s own Nigel Fritzmaurice and Lisa Oldershaw. They talked us through Nigel’s experience of testing positive for Copv19. They told movingly of Nigel’s time in Colchester and Papworth hospitals. Nigel said that his recovery was a miracle that the medical professionals could not fully explain. Nigel felt the support he had from Lisa was tremendous. She felt the support from others, including those who she shared every day with on Facebook, had been a great help and given her strength. They felt that all that had happened showed that life could change in an instant. Consequently everyday should be lived to the full.
