Sunday serialisation – The Orphans, 6.1 — 8 Comments

  1. Astounding writing, Keith! I’m so honored I stumbled across this blog! I also wanted to tell you thank you SO SO SO much for taking the time to read my post “Please Help Our Momma” that was reblogged on the Our Rumbling Ocean blog. It means the world to me that you stopped to read about our cause. I’d humbly like to ask that you consider making a contribution to the cancer relief crowd funding campaign me and my twelve year old brother made for our mom who is fighting third stage colon cancer. Attached are both the links to my original post as well as the campaign itself where you can donate. Please take time to put my family in your consideration this week. If you cannot donate please at least reblog our cause. I know you can help make a tremendous difference!

    • Christopher. Thank you so much for your very encouraging comments.
      Your family’s plight touches me on a number of levels. My neighbour (I live in a tiny hamlet of three houses in the middle of France) was diagnosed with colon cancer as a result of a routine test that all we over-50s have every two years. He went through a year of chemo and is now fine. A friend in her 40s had the same problem and is also improving, both thanks to the thing that so many of your countrymen seem to fear – affordable, accessible, health care backed by government-sponsored insurance.
      My son lives in Florida and I have to say that it is mainly the unaffordable cost of healthcare that has stopped my wife and me from moving across to join him. On my way to igg.me now. It won’t be much, but I’ll do what I can.

    • Thank you so much, John.
      Poor Hannice has a lot to go through in this book (in which he is, in reality, only a supporting character) and in a companion book Knight and Deigh which covers his involvement in Max’s story from his perspective, and expands into an examination of his (I hate this word) journey with the results of his injury.

  2. Having spent an inordinate amount of time in the hospital with four crushed vertebrae, I can say you nailed Hannice’s feelings and the temporary course of treatment. Well done.

Here's where you have your say…
