Thank Frankel it's Friday – Niki Lauda redefined brave

I am aware of how heartless this is going to make me sound, but when I read that someone has survived, or succumbed to, some terrible illness ‘after putting up such a brave fight’ I never really know what to think. I’d love to think that purely physical conditions can somehow be beaten by sheer force of character, but I’m afraid I don’t believe it and until someone proves that the mind really can prevail over matter I can’t see me being persuaded otherwise.
