Natasha Jones Founder

I was diagnosed with Leukaemia just 3 weeks after giving birth to my second son in 2005. I was immediately put into isolation where I spent 6 months receiving treatment. It was during this time that I wanted to turn my experience into something positive by helping other people in the same situation as myself. Leaf was founded from my hospital bed in February 2006.

Leaf is now in it’s eighth year and going from strength to strength.

I am very fortunate to have been given the all clear from Leukaemia and I have also been so lucky to have given birth to my third son in 2008. I have been given a second chance at life and I intend to ‘make a difference’ by giving others hope and support in understanding their needs from my personal experience.
In May 2011 I was announced as the  ‘Special Woman’ of 2011 at The Dorset Women in Business Awards and in July 2012 I had the proud honour of running with the Olympic torch!  This was such a proud moment for my family and I feel that I am achieving what I set out to do.
