Jade, who has defied medical experts who said she would never walk again, spoke with Ste Greenall on Black Cat Radio.
Chatting on the station's Full English Breakfast Show, when Ste asked how Jade was, she replied "Not
great, but I try to take every day as it comes and to make the best as I can.
. Ste suggested that Jade had proven every medical expert wrong and she said "I certainly did; I didn't want to take their prognosis at all.
"I pushed myself to the limit to get to the place where I am now."
She added: "It has been so lovely that so many people care.
"The children are in my mind every second of every day and I just know they would want their mummy
to keep pushing to get mobile."
Later, Jade, her former neighbours and friends, plus Ste and Mayor Stephen Ferguson and his wife Charlotte, marked the occasion with tea at Betty Bumbles Vintage Tea Rooms in the town and Jade presented everyone with a
little "Thank you" gift which included a packet of forget-me-not seeds.
