For almost five years now I have been part of an internet forum group on The Nappy Network, a group that promotes the use of cloth nappies. Some of my best IRL friends have  been made from their number, and I’ve had the privledge of sharing highs and lows with many of the mums on TNN over the years.

One such mum has had to deal with the news no parent wants to hear: her beautiful, soon to be four year old daughter, who has been fighting cancer for the past two years, is no longer in remission. The cancer has come back, and she will be receiving palliative care only, and they have a terribly short time frame  left given to them to spend with their precious daughter. 

It is a gut-wrenching situation, and it makes you want to do all you can for the family.  The lovely TNN ladies are pulling together to organise some financial support, as well as practical support.  One wonderful mummy has put together a raffle on her blog, with all proceeds going towards Hope’s family.

You can find all the details on Julia’s blog here, along with some stunning pictures of Hope and her wonderful family.

    Oh, this is so sad. When my daughter was 3, one of her playmates died of cancer, and it was gut-wrenching.It’s so nice that there are so many people offering emotional support.

    I used cloth diapers, too, even when I had two in diapers at the same time. I loved them.
