I rode over to see my parents tonight as I do all the time. My Mum is now permanently disabled caused by cancer that found its way into her spine. The knock on effect was nerve damage that has now rendered her legs useless and she's chair bound and relies on carers. To compound things her latest scan shows lung tumours that are growing, not rapidly but they are not going away.
Now my Mum is a very hardy and generally positive woman who has fought cancer for nigh on twenty years but tonight understandably she was not as chirpy as usual. So I am on a mission to cheer her up and if you have ten minutes you can help. It would be great if she could get some random postcards or letters from complete strangers saying "Hi".
I have no idea what would come after "Hi" but I don't think an essay in sympathy is her kind of thing. Maybe something along the lines of .. "Dave told us you could do with cheering up so here's a picture of me with a ferret".
Even if only one person did it, I think it would give her a few minutes break from my slightly insane Dad who she has to share a room with all day long. Think me in 20 years time.
Anyway I'd thought I'd ask. If anyone's up for it. Drop me a PM and I'll give you her address.
