Irfon Williams Update
This has been a challenging four weeks for me and my sewing for this is now over but Irfon’s fight continues! He’s been denied the drugs that he needs by the Health Authority in Wales because the National Health Service in Wales doesn’t have a cancer drugs fund. His story has now been picked up by the Welsh BBC national media and is being discussed in the Welsh government so hopefully this problem that affects many cancer patients in Wales can be addressed.
In the meantime Irfon is moving to England in the hopes of getting the treatment he needs there. Characteristically of Irfon, he’s still positive and hopeful and has been posting his favourite tunes on Facebook. Here’s one of my personal favourites – Our House by Madness!
Irfon, rock on my friend, we’re all behind you!!
GOOD LUCK and HAPPY BIDDING!!!
This auction is now CLOSED.
Thanks to all the bidders and congratulations to Tom, the dungarees are now yours for 65 euros and Aubrey has the fashion sketch ‘Lady in Grey’ for 20 dollars.
Would you both now please pay at justgiving.com – you can click the link on ‘pay’. Please leave a comment with your donation and say that it’s for this auction and once that is processed, we’ll organise shipping.
Thanks again to all those who took part and good luck to Irfon and his family – we’re rooting for you!
