I started caring for my mum, who has arthritis, and my dad, who has spinal problems, when I was 14.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
Mandy Massey from the children's charity supported the project by providing an interview for the broadcast item.

Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
