We are so grateful for so many unexpected acts of kindness! This week a few people who don’t know us personally have sponsored us and we are really touched by the support! I am sorry that we cannot say thank you more directly to our anonymous donors, but we can at least thank you here and hope that you might see it.
Perhaps even more touching are the words of encouragement from one donor: “You are doing something amazing and my heart goes out to you. It’s people like you that keep the world moving in the right direction. Never lose faith.” You really made our day – Thank you!
We’d love to hear your story if you know someone who has suffered with this disease. We’d also really love to hear if you know anyone who has found any food, treatment or therapy (conventional or otherwise) particularly helpful, as we’d love to share this information with our Dad and others!

We are also really grateful to Debbie Waite, who has written a lovely article about our challenge in this week’s Oxford Mail, which you can read here.
All this kindness reminded me of George Saunders’s Commencement speech on kindness, which he gave at Syracuse University. I discovered it by chance a few months ago and shared it with my Dad, who is genuinely the kindest person I know! It made us both cry and is definitely worth reading if you haven’t already. You can read it here. I can’t recommend it enough!
