The short story is, my aunt 45yo, was diagnosed terminally ill just over 2 years ago, a recent scan, has show she now has months left
She is guardian to her 4yo grandson, and has been since his birth
Her mother died very young again with cancer, and my aunt was placed into care, where she was sexually abused the whole time there She started a new chemo 3 weeks ago, and woke up the morning before last and had lost every single bit of her hair She battled breast cancer in 2003, but it come back some years later in her bones She really has had a really terrible life, I will not go to much into detail, its not a nice read
Its her birthday July 7th, its very likely it will be her last birthday. She is a massive F1 fan, in particular the F1 driver Heikki Kovalainen [so much that her grandsons middle name is Kovalainen]
Im desperate to get her a signed birthday card from Heikki Kovalainen Ive left messages on his FB, and Twitter page, and heard nothing back In the messages I have offered to pay for the card/postage
Has anyone got any advice on how to get this card for her I have no idea of any contacts/address to get the right people to read IYSWIM?
Another though would be to contact your local paper and see if they would be willing to help. They would probably want to feature a short story though so it would depend on how you Aunt felt about publicity.
My Aunt does not live local to me She is in Manchester, though we are always up there to visit
Stupid I know, Ive even thought of Jeremy vile.
My aunt is a very shy, reserved lady and would not want to be in the public eye,all the shit she has gone through in her lifetime, really has knocked her confidence to almost zero. She does not see the brave, strong beautiful person we all see
Her grandson will stay with my aunts dh, he is quite a bit older than my aunt, so should he struggle, he will come to Wales and live with me Still no joy, good idea about the agent, shall do a bit of research online
