Thank-you to all our fundraisers

There is not a huge amount to do in Jacksonville. Don't get me wrong, there are some lovely places to see, but we have almost exhausted things to do with the days. If the weather's good then it's great, but the weekends are really important in terms of just getting out of Jacksonville and doing some fun things. We headed down to Cocoa Beach again on the weekend and stayed at a hotel with an outdoor heated swimming pool.

Every time we pay out for something nice, we are so grateful for everybody back home who so generously donated money for Joel to have some respite from his treatment. These times are so important to Joel. He said last night, 'I'm so lucky that I can have a holiday whilst having my treatment'. The Americans who have travelled here for treatment call it the 'Radiation Vacation'! So thank-you to everyone.

Joel spent most of the weekend in the pool and on the beach, exhausting me with football. We made a sandcastle village to while away the time.



  1. The updates are fantastic and I'm so pleased Joel is being such a brave boy! Thinking about you all daily and sending all our love and positive vibes to you all especially Joel.

  2. Thanks Beth - thinking of you all too. Wishing Amelie a fantastic birthday next month. Love from us all x x
