    I'm 22, unemployed and with a student debt the length of my arm but causes don't get more worthy than this. It's not a lot - I wish I had more to give away - but I hope it helps. Best of luck on your ride and more importantly my very best wishes to the little man, I'm sure he has the fight in him to pull through!

    That's very kind of you Rigged. The good thing is that this money will go towards trying to prevent people getting it in the future. Research is definatly the way to go.

    I really appreciate you doing this, and your best wishes.

    Just heard that the company I work for matches donations we receive with donations to their chosen Charity "Action for Children". Which is good :)
  • Jim,
    wishing William all the best with the treatment.
    good luck for the ride. :D

    He currently seems to have more energy than his parents which is bizarre.

    Thanks engy. for the donation and wishes. Hopefully He'll pull through it all ok. He's on day 9 today, so the new cells go in tomorrow. Just have to hope it works and he doesn't get too ill with it all.

    thanks again :)

    The big day is tomorrow. New stem cells going into him.

    He perked up this afternoon which is amazing considering the drugs he's had over the past 9 days.

    fingers getting even tighter crossed now :)

    Thanks so very much for the wishes and donation :)
    The below picture (if it works ok) is of the new stem cells going in (i.e. the bone marrow).

    If anyone wishes to join a bone marrow register:

    There's a good chance you'll never be a match (I haven't been so far, close but not 100% suitable), but just by being registered you increase the chances for someone out there who may need it.

    Good call BigJimmyB. Anthony Nolan did the work to get the contents of the above syringe into my son.
    An amazing charity. You can also get on the register when you give blood next.

    As a father of 2 very precious little girls I can't begin to imagine what you are going through. You are incredibly strong and it seems your little boy has inherited all of that strength. Best wishes and have a great ride. Donation made. Rob.

    I really really hope that this works out for the little lad. He looks a real fighter. Keep doing what you're doing BigJim1, I can only say how much I admire how you've responded to this situation... I think I would have gone to pieces :(

    What do I ride? Now that's an Enigma!
  • Big Jim1Big Jim1 Posts: 182
    He got really sick over night with suspected Appendicitus. Had an emergency scan this morning which pretty much ruled it out thank god. They now think it's something called Mucositus which is an expected side affect, though with the acute pain he had it's a little unusual. So it's still wait and hope :(

    From having a really nervous yesterday morning, he was really good last night. So looks like the crossed fingers and best wishes are still doing their bit in all this. :)
