This video contains images and voices of a deceased person. It has been published as a tribute to Rebecca Wilson and her legacy.
Rebecca Wilson had a full and wonderful life, sadly she passed away in October 2016 after losing her fight with Breast Cancer.
In this final part of our interview with Rebecca, filmed in May 2016, Deborah asked Rebecca how she found Balance and what her proudest achievement was.
Rebecca said it was undoubtedly her two children, Tom and Will.
“I look at my two boys and they have incredibly different strengths but they are both great people,” Rebecca said.
“They have got this very strong self-confidence which is perfect in a man, it’s quiet but don’t cross them. They are both probably going to end up in the media which makes me very proud.”
Rebecca goes on to talk about the things that she still wanted to achieve including writing a book about her family and spending time in Greece.

A personal note from Deb
Bec was an extraordinary person and very special to many people, including me.
She was family… she was my cousin. I am devastated at her loss.
Publishing this interview on Balance is my way of sharing her beauty and wisdom which she had in bucket loads.
She will be greatly missed. I’m so grateful we both found the time to talk about life in general and to capture that.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Find out more here.
