Blog 11- SO much Success
Another week, another blog!
This week has been particularly eventful, both with my own stuff and RemissionPossible.
Number 1 and probably MOST importantly is the fact Beatrice, awesome Beatrice…..IS IN REMISSION!!!! YAYYY
She found out last week, and I am sooooo incredibly happy. Gorgeous Bee got me through my own treatment with our Mastercheffing and food cupboard raiding.
Cheering, celebrating and crazy Em dancing aside.
In the past week donations for the gift boxes have been FLOODING in! We have more hats and earwarmers than ever, as well as skincare packs from the UltraCalm Dermalogica range, scarf and bath fizzer gifts from Lush Cardiff, a multitude of books from Orion Books and a load of products from QD stores!!!
The people who have donated products will forever become part of the RemissionPossible Family and I will always be grateful to them.
This progress is SO SO exciting for me, as the boxes begin to get ever closer to being able to be launched in TCT Cardiff.
Remember, even though TCT boxes haven’t been launched you can order a teen git box, or an any age information box…RIGHT NOW!
As well as kindly donated products I have received leaflets from Teens Unite Fighting Cancer, Ellen Macarthur Sailing trust, Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, Teenage Cancer trust, Tenovus……A massive array of leaflets designed to be informative and helpful for people diagnosed with cancer.
As have said above if someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer, whatever age they are, whatever their diagnosis, If you want to give a meaningful, thoughtful, HELPFUL gift, in a time when helping seems impossible, please request a gift box. All we ask is a donation towards shipping and box costs, all items within are donated. We just want to help.
Now onto me! -I have been very busy, hopping around the place for choir concerts! I guess many of you reading this blog who know me will know that I m a member of Torfaen music centre gospel choir. Personally I think this past week has been the best that the choir has ever had!
On Monday we performed with other greater went groups at St David’s hall, in Cardiff. I LOVE performing there, the atmosphere was great, and I had some delicious noodles for lunch!
The other concert with choir I was preforming at was the Music for Youth national festival in Birmingham. Many of you who are/have been involved in local or regional music groups will know what a BIG DEAL it is to be asked to perform in National festival, so as you can imagine I was SO excited to be going, especially seeing as I missed the regional rounds of the festival due to being in hospital.
Now, not to blow our own trumpets in the slightest, but in Birmingham on Wednesday…. We were AMAZING! Easily the best concert we have ever done!
Finally some other super-duper cool news…..*drumroll Please* I am once again going to be in the news! I will be back on Wales Online AND on ITV wales!!!!!!!
ITV are really interested in RemissionPossible, and I am so happy that this round of Media interest is focussed on RemissionPossible and our work that I’m trying to do… and not a sob story.
The thing is I said Beatrice’s News was probably m important….EXCEPT for some breaking news- Hollie Clark, @helphollie and the innovator of #pantsonhead HAS A MATCH!!!!!
(hollie isn’t my sister by the way, just another Hollie Clark)
