A Christmas Wish for Baby Declan

I hope you all heard (well at least our South African listeners) on the 94.7 Christmas wishlist this morning, that our little friend Declan Du Toit was chosen as the recipient of a wish coming true!

I was ecstatic to get a call from Declans Aunty Emsie yesterday afternoon to tell me Declan had been chosen and that it would be broadcast this morning at 0820am. She swore me to secracy as you can respect, that if a secret like this got out it could spoil the surprise for Declan and Gillian this morning! It will also be aired on mnet tonight at 7pm - so be sure to catch that and to 'meet' Declan and his wonderful through the power of the tv!

If you didnt manage to catch it or cant if you are a friend abroad - Declan recieved R48 000 to settle his outstanding medical bills, and a trust has been set up for him to the value of R52 000 for next year, to settle any future medical bills! What a wonderful Christmas present for the Du Toit family - that the stress of worrying about finances has now been made a little lighter and a little easier to bare, that they can continue putting all their efforts into getting Mr Declan 110% well again!

Thank you to you all for supporting their t shirt drive - they are being printed as i type and Emsie will be in contact with all of you to arrange collections/ deliveries! They are overwhelmed at the support and love you continue to give their monster killer! If you havent already go and visit Declan at www.all-hands-on-dec.co.za

God Bless you all and lets continue to help others where ever we can , just an email to the right people can make all the difference in the world! I also sent a wish in for our friend Ruan, praying that may fall into the right hands and his dream of having Barney arrive at the hospital, come true!

Lots of love, incredible thanks , God Bless
