Your help has carried me through the most difficult times of my life.
You have treated me with such care and warmth and generosity that I am profoundly moved by it. I am improving daily and soon I hope to be back at work. I will never forget your kindness.
The difference that you make to our lives is difficult to put into words - your support keeps us going, not only financially, but also to know that we are not on our own is massive. Thank you.
