Jessica Taylor-Bearman has lived with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) since childhood and in 2010 founded and currently operates Share A Star Charity to "bring back the sparkle for children and teenagers who are fighting life threatening or chronic illnesses."[1] She writes two blogs, JayTay and The World Of One Room.[2]

Awards[edit]

Jessica was awarded Points of Light February, 2016. Prime Minister David Cameron said: “With Share a Star, Jessica has shown a remarkable commitment to supporting other young people who face serious ill health, or have very ill siblings. The peer support and family trips she organises have brought much-needed joy to hundreds of severely unwell young people and their families, despite her own ill health. To those who have received her kindness and empathy she is a true point of light.” Local MP, Kelly Tolhurst said: “I am delighted that Jessica’s inspiration and dedication has been recognised with a Point of Light Award. Jessica and Share a Star are a credit to our local area having genuinely made a difference to hundreds of severely unwell children and their families. I deeply admire their invaluable work and fighting spirit and I would like to wish continued achievement to Jessica and her team.”[3]
