Jojo Fraser is an author, entertainer and motivational speaker and her mission is to give everyone she meets a mojo injection. She loves to get people out of their racing minds and is known for her positive energy, getting people singing and dancing and making each second count.
Becoming a Patron for Make 2nds Count is a huge honour. To see the awareness already raised, the growth of the charity and passion from Lisa, Euan and the team is so inspiring. Making each second count is at the very core of my work and that involves looking after our mental and emotional wellbeing. Lisa is proof that with determination and good intentions, anything is possible no matter what life throws at you. Watching her sing for the first time since her diagnosis, on my podcast the mojo injection, is something I’ll never forget. Music lights us up and is the best medicine for our well-being. My mantra for the toughest of times (and one I used when I was in hospital not so long ago) - always keep singing and dancing. It’s infectious in the best possible way.

I was instantly drawn to her and wanted to help. I’m honoured to be a patron of Make 2nds Count and will do all I can to support the charity, help raise funds for vital research and help raise awareness"
