Expression of thanks from Jim, manager of Big Blue Koh Tao and father of Isla.
So tonight's the night. Tonight all my friends, my colleagues, my island brothers and sisters, my Koh Samui family, my Thailand diving community, have all collaborated and donated some of the most amazing, luxurious, delicious, expensive prizes to a raffle which will hopefully generate financial assistance in our bid to rid our precious little 3 year old Isla of leukemia.
We haven't had time to get around to thanking you all and also for everyone who contributed to the fundraising page on just giving.com but from the bottom of our hearts we thank you.
It has been the toughest, roughest, exhausting, most emotionally draining time of our lives and we are only half way through the treatment. But with your help, your support, your generosity, your messages of strength, your love and prayers we can see the light at the end of this very dark and dingy tunnel.
We hope it's a big turn out tonight, we hope you all have a great time, and most of all we hope you buy lots of raffle tickets and win!
Love to everyone who contributed, to everyone who can come, to everyone who bought tickets and especially to everyone who made this possible. To my darling brave little princess. This is all for you darling. Keep on smiling Isla.
