    its working ok at the moment guys, ive just come from there.
    this is somthing that everyone onhearc should at least have a look at

    I would imagine the story itself is far to big to put on hear, whilst i was on there were 54 people rreading the thread, and it was 97 pages long!

    Nobody needs to register to see it....

    It's 96 pages long (that since boxing day) :shock: :shock:

    They have just created an individual category for just that thread and I have now updated the link... should be OK now folks.

    Can I say, this must be one - if not the - most inspirational thread I have ever seen on the net. It has received massive circulation and distribution since it's 1st post on Boxing day.

    There are some truely good people out there...

    I read this thread and clicked on the link - without ANY problems. Paragraph 6 had me welling up. I would use the cry emoticon :cry: but it doesn't seem strong enough for how I felt.

    Have now read SuperSops post to which I did not believe! However I trust the guy so DO believe him.

    Made me have faith in the fight against cancer is not a lost one. There are plenty of people out there to be helped - am determined to help them.

    RIP - A wonderful child/young adult (whom I never knew) who lost his fight against cancer but loved paintballing.
