About Herbie1
Joined June 2015
I grew up on my father's farm and I could think of nothing I wanted to do more than to join him in the family business. This did not happen because he was taken ill and sold the farm. Somehow I found myself following behind him through University to become a teacher. This was to be my vocation. I rose to the dizzy heights of Headmaster in a lovely Junior School in North Yorkshire where in my teaching role I taught Science and ICT to children up to the age of 11 years. After 25 happy and exhausting years, I retired.
From the start of my teaching career I led and encouraged all sorts of outdoor education and sport. Over the year's many 100's of young children learned to play rugby, football and to camp and stay away from home in hostels and hotels. most memorable of all for me and all the children and parents concerned were the ski trips to resorts all over Europe. This meant twice annual ventures to the snow between 1973 and 2006 and by outcome there must now be 1000's of former pupils spreading this passion to all and sundry. I know of at least 3 that have gone on to become qualified ski instructors and two that actually work on the slopes in Austria. One of whom, will see me again soon in Maria Alm, where he lives and works with all his family!
Now retired, I continue to throw my all into supporting my rugby club in Harrogate and travelling with my wife as much as I can. However, it has always been my dream to establish an online business to support my two beautiful girls and their families. with a background in IT, I thought I would find this easy, but as so many others, I learnt a lot, spent a huge amount and made practically nothing! Hence my eagerness to join WA!
As to what I want to achieve with help from members of WA, is very clear cut. My beautiful 4 year old Granddaughter Grace, tragically died just before Christmas last year. She had just started school and a few weeks in was taken ill suddenly and rushed into hospital. At first we were told it was appendicitis, but she went down hill very fast. She was rushed into The Birmingham Children's Hospital, where a biopsy confirmed a very rare and untreatable kidney cancer. The biopsy itself, caused the cancer to spread to all her major organs and she died in terrible pain 3 days later. From a happy, bright schoolgirl with many friends, to dead and buried in less than three weeks.
Not surprisingly the family in devastated. We will get through it, but not over it. My daughter, a doctor, is dedicating the rest of her life to raising awareness and funds for research into children's cancers. We were horrified to learn that less than 2% of funds raised for cancer is spent on researching children's cancers, despite the fact that cancer kills more children under the age of 18, than all other deaths added together. This is just not acceptable in a modern world.
My daughter has already made a wonderful start to fund raising and spreading awareness. To date, less than 3 months after establishing a simple website, she has raised in excess of 30,000 GDP. The website and Facebook serve their purpose, but most of the money raised has been at a local level through word of mouth.
I wish to dedicate my remaining time in retirement developing an online commercial business to support this wonderful family project, in the hope that one day, children like "our Grace," will have the chance of survival. For my part this means giving freely of my time and 100% of the profits to research.
If members of WA are willing to help me to reach this goal, all my dreams can be realized!

Broken down, this is going to be more than achievable for you (and then some). The internet has over 2 billion people actively search for and buying things online. All you need to do is connect with a few of these people each day to meet your initial goal!

I know with some hard work and persistence you will achieve all of your goals and then be building brand new ones. I am here to help if you ever need anything and you have an entire community rooting for your success here at WA Chris! :)

Kyle, this is very reassuring. I would love to help achieve this for "Angel Grace forever four years old." Her precious life was cruelly snatched away all too soon, but if she can leave the sort of legacy you hint as doable for the good of others, then her name will live on and her life will have been worthwhile. Thank you Kyle and especially so if the WA community will root for our success.

Hi Herbie, what a tragic loss you had. It's crazy how that children have to die on cancer. Is it because there is so many poison around us and in the food? Keep doing the good work. I appreciate it.
