    As many of you will know, my son Tom has been receiving treatment for thyroid cancer. He is doing really well and is about to have radioactive iodine treatment. During this period my daughter was finishing her degree and despite everything managed to graduate with a first class degree. She has a place for a masters in september and has entered a competition to obtain funding. I would be very grateful if you could vote for her picture thank you!

    I voted, Gill. I'll also send the link to both of my DDs and ask for them to vote and to get their friends involved.

    I had made a donation to St. Jude's in your son's name a few months back (that was a different thread), and I continue to keep him and the rest of your family in my prayers. Hugs! :grouphug

    Done! Congratulations to your daughter for finishing her degree despite the enormous stress your entire family must be under. It's a wonderful achievement. The photo of Keira and her brother Tom is wonderful and I hope that Tom continues on the road to recovery. Sending you all some healing and positive thoughts! xx
