Brave Emma update

Our very brave Emma is still recovering from her double lung transplant but reports ‘Things are slow and it looks like probably being a year of recovery due to all the complications I’ve had and still getting though. Still I’m plodding along and will get there!’  Seems to be  a long slow journey but I know we are all constantly sending love and hugs to let her know we are thinking of her.  Well done Emma, you have come so far.  Love also to Brad and Teddy.

The map has just been updated and we are inching ever nearing the magical 10,000 duck mark.  One of my favourite comments from this week came from Julie Gregson of Manchester who was holidaying with her family in Perth, Scotland when she found one of the Ben’s PeeBat ducks in a geocache.

Julie commented “Found this lovely duck while on holiday in Scotland. It will be coming home to Manchester with us. When I read the background to this project it struck a chord with me. My friend’s son had a bone marrow
transplant after an auto immune disease attacking his liver. Over a
year on he is healthy and doing well thanks to the kindness of a
stranger.

The kindness of strangers, whether you are making ducks or gifting your organs, bone marrow, blood or tissues, is what the Little Yellow Duck Project is all about.
