    I know I don't post a huge amount but if I could just have a minute of your time icon_smile.gif

    Her daughter has been diagnosed with a brain stem tumour and the doctors say chances are she wont be able to make it another year icon_sad.gif

    There has already been support services set up in her community and a large company in australia has said if they can get a facebook page about it up to 10,000 members they will provide them with a huge grant to help them surgery bills and general living costs due to the impacts this has had on them.

    Can you please go this facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/miettesjourney, and like it. Also could you please share it with your facebook friends too. icon_smile.gif If we can get to 10,000 members with in a week they stand a very good chance of getting assistance.

    Thanks icon_smile.gif

    How exactly does gathering "e-signatures" correlate to this company's support? I mean I can understand that the traditional signature-gathering process is to prove enough people want something, like a change in the community etc. Is the correlation here that if enough people want this little girl to live then she gets the support? What's the logic?

    From my understanding the company is still looking at this from a business standpoint. The facebook page is like market research to them. They are willing to help but only if a significant amount of people are aware of it happening and in turn gaining goodwill.

    Its kinda shallow but hey... thats the world today.

    why doesn't the page actually say this is the reason it wants people to 'like' it?

    The page was created by the mother so given the situation I don't think she is able to properly plan out everything right now :

    Next time I talk to her though I'll let her know to add it on there.
