Knock on Effecting

27 Apr

I wasn’t expecting yesterday to carry on as it did when I wrote the blog.

Rosie was pretty much filling up our minds as we left the YPU yesterday. The trickiest bit was passing the room where she’d got her ‘terminal’ diagnosis and, for some reason, seeing the clock tower which was, I suppose, the iconic symbol of yet another bad news visit to QE. On the other hand, and far outweighing the bad feelings, it was brilliant to see people again and to see how the YPU is doing.

Anyway, on the way home, as I was idly looking at Twitter, there was a Tweet from our friends at Hope Support about a 19 year old called William Henderson, who comes from Gloucestershire, who is doing a skydive for McMillan.

So had a bit of a wander over to his Twitter and followed the link. And found this brilliant person, Cal’s age, who’s set up this

What a star he is. So Chris, Cal, Sylv, Rosie and I have helped him a bit with his fundraising – it would be good if you can put a shout out for him too. And…..he’s written a bit about Rosie and he’s going to wear a TKOE tshirt with pride on his skydive.

See, knock on effects in action. 🙂 🙂
