Meet Lisa and her brother Tommy-Lisa`s son Kyle and Tommy`s daughter Emma. They live in Branford, Connecticut , U.S.A. Lisa contacted me several weeks ago through facebook and bought several bands from me- My heart went out to her as she wrote that her brother Tommy who is 52 had been diagnosed with ALS/MND less than a year ago now-I think these photographs are heartwarming and sums up what Christmas is all about- don`t you ?
I love this photo-doesn`t it look lovely ? the fire is lit-the Christmas tree looks really pretty-presents are being opened- You can feel the love ! It`s obvious that this is a very kind , loving and supportive family .We need more families like Lisa`s to come forward and buy bands from us to help raise awareness of this very cruel disease- and by doing so help increase awareness and funding so hopefully one day a cure will be found. I started this blog because I wanted Andrew to feel loved and supported - but if other people out there like us- have a loved one suffering from this disease - maybe united we can make a difference-if you can, please help support this charity-it really does need your help,
This coming year will be a busy one !The Presbytarian Church are holding a hotpot supper in January to raise funds for M.N.D.A. We have a calendar to design and produce- not to mention a photo shoot to organize on top of a suitable mountain with the M.N.D made from human letters ! We still have to work hard selling bands and raising funds to meet our £10,000 target-I have written to Asda`s again requesting a fundraising day[January the 30th] and if possible another bag pack !
In march , Prestatyn Cons club have offered to hold a fund raising night- we will be holding another raffle-so if anyone out there has any unwanted Christmas presents please you know where to send them -we will be very grateful !
Finally a big thank you to cousin Karen-instead of writing Christmas cards-the money she saved she donated to Andrews charity, also to fellow blogger Diane who writes a lovely blog called heartshaped-your donation was really appreciated -thank you xx Thats it for now !
Wishing you all lots of love, laughter and good health and happiness for 2011- Jan and family xxxx
