We did it. In blistering time!27 August 2016
There's probably no better word right now than WOW.
When we kicked this off on Wednesday night, we expected it to pretty much tick along for a couple of months - and yet in a couple of *days* an amazingly generous wine community (and friends outside it) have not only reached the nominal target, but blown it out of the water.
The level is now enough to fund the next part of Raymond's Keytruda treatment. At that point, but only then, will the oncologists be able to determine to what degree it’s working and how much more to continue with. Or (and everyone certainly hopes this is not the scenario), it may not be delivering the desired result, in which case paying for more won't be worth it.
So there’s now a bit of time to pass until it’s known whether more fundraising, to what level, is necessary.
Many, many thanks from Raymond and Sue meantime. They are absolutely overwhelmed and so grateful for the support, with a depth of emotion that words simply cannot describe.
