As you may know I changed career to a dog walker – in that time I have met some amazing people who have let me literally into their family home and have the joy of walking their little balls of fluff.
There is one family in particular with a little Cockerpoo called Coco I affectionately call Cocopops who just LOVES LIFE!!! He literally makes me smile as everything is WONDERFUL he is always super duper HAPPY. Well this little one comes from an equally amazing family. They would leave me home baked treats. Their children when about, would show me their latest game, costume or even how to floss and generally all radiate sunshine. Imagine the shock when the youngest family member Deacon was diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma. He is five years old and battling through this tough time with a huge smile on his face showing everyone how strong he is. He has now lost his hair through chemotherapy and little Deacon and his family are regulars at the amazing Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The family have been getting amazing support via a local charity ‘’Gold Geese’’ and it is here I want to donate all profits from the Virtual Run.
This is work in progress so please bear with me I don’t have all the I’s dotted and t’s crossed but I
sincerely hope you will all get on board and join in the fun which in turn will help this wonderful family and others like it.
No it isn’t an animal charity it is however a local one and one that has touched my heart and if you met Coco and his family you would want to keep them LOVING LIFE!!!!!
