Again, really late at night posting but, a good friend of mine, who has been a significant member of our rescue team for many years, is waiting to hear if the tests she has had for cancer are positive.
This is a person who has children, grandchildren, a disabled husband, a father with cancer (who lives with her family) and still manages to take rescue cats, dogs, horses, pigs, goats, chickens, rabbits and anything that needs help into her smallholding and ensures they get the necessary care and veterinary treatment they need.
Her husband has become almost totally blind and is waiting to go to China for revolutionary laser eye treatment. These are not elderly people, they are in their forties but, should anything happen to my pal....her animals will all be at risk. Because she is waiting for her own test results her husband has had to postpone his trip to China. Her father goes into hospital tomorrow for another operation for his cancer.
I find this all draining....these are good,kind, consciencious people who care about animals, the environment and each other. Her son (who is in the army) is currently waiting to go back to Iraq. Yet still, with all this going on, she continues to help rescue animals.
YOU GUYS OUT THERE WHO ARE 'MILLIONAIRES' WHO CONSTANTLY 'COUNT' HOW MUCH YOU ARE WORTH.....PLEASE CONSIDER HELPING THOSE WHO ASK FOR NOTHING...YET DO SO MUCH. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AT:
[email protected] AND I WILL GLADLY PUT YOU DIRECTLY IN TOUCH WITH A REAL PERSON WHO GENUINLY NEEDS HELP (BUT IS TOO PROUD TO ASK FOR IT HERSELF).
If I could change places with my mate....I would...gladly. I am so sick of the cruelty, greed and self importance of those who waffle on about different 'causes' whilst doing absolutely nothing to help those, totally genuine people, who may not bless our planet with their presence for much longer.
This is not a 'media appeal'...just a cry for help for someone who so deserves it. If you care....contact me, either on the email above or 01559 362990...."better be remembered for what you do now...than what you might have done."
