a 17-day battle with an immune system disorder.
Her mother Natalia, from Cheltenham, is embarking on a
year-long coastal walk to raise funds for Bristol Children’s Hospital, which
cared for Elizabeth.
“This is a very easy thing to do after what I have been
through. I am not nervous – I feel good about it. Am I brave? I don’t know. I
don’t feel brave, I am just dealing with the situation because there is not
much I could do,” said the 41-year-old.

“She was my whole entire life – all my routine was
around her. There was nothing left for me. She will be with me every step of
the way. We will do it together.”
Mrs Spencer began the walk at Durdle Door in Dorset, which
was the last spot she visited with her late daughter.
Elizabeth died from HLH, hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis
– sparked by a common virus which then caused her organs to shut down.
Her mother is aiming to raise £100,000 for charity by
walking clockwise around the coastline of mainland Britain.
