Default Two very special kids

Hi, guys, I hope you don't mind me taking this off-topic for a moment.

As some of you might know, I work at the Children's Unit of the local hospital, and this work takes me onto the Children's Oncology Ward. Two children I've had lots of contact with are Liam and Bethan, age 6 and 5 respectively, who both have Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.

They have a website, and are eager to get entries in their guestbook from as many people as they possibly can, from all over the world. Their website is here: Liam & Bethan's Website. Please pay a visit and take a moment of your time to leave a message in their guest book, and explore the site, as I know it would thrill them no end. Also, please feel free to pass this link onto people outside of this group.

Em x

I spent quite a while exploring that site and what I saw was amazing. Two children with so much drive and determination (read some of the diary entries). Truly an inspiration to us all

So many of the kids I get to meet (and play with, how cool a job is THAT?) are just so amazing. They are dealing with things that adults would have problems coping with, but take it all in their stride. It's very humbling.
