There is so much you could say, but there are no words that seem like they actually mean anything at the moment. What words could you possibly come up with for something so heart-breaking. Heart-breaking seems like a mild understatement of a description, it’s more than devastating.
I’ve been sat wondering what to write for ages and still I’ve come up blank.
Yesterday we heard the news that the treatment hasn’t worked and little Aaron Junior is losing his battle with cancer.
The next few weeks are about making him comfortable and spending time with his mum and dad and his brothers and family.
Still no words really come to me.
A While ago I said I was going to put together a book of poetry to raise money for Great Ormond Street, and I still intend on doing that. That is what I am working on now.
But as well as that, My wife, my Brother and I are running the rat race Dirty Weekend in May for Children with Cancer UK. They help fund research for childhood cancers, but they also support projects such as the family care at great Ormond Street which has been of great help to AJ and his mum and dad. They fund projects for hospices for support and treats for terminally ill children to make cherished memories.
It’s such an amazing charity and does so much amazing work for children fighting the hardest battles.
20 miles and 200 obstacles? pah, that’s nothing in comparison!
If you have a little bit leftover at the end of the day, just a few pence or spare change, consider sponsoring us just a little, so that other little boys and girls like AJ can recieve the same great care that he has and maybe have a chance at beating it.
