    I have just recieved some good news regarding a scare where we thought my wife may have had lung cancer.

    It now looks certain to be something much less severe and I cant explain the relief this gives you, however many people arent so lucky.

    Something like this really seems to re-align your priorities in life.

    I am currently toying with the idea of setting up some sort of site to try to raise money for a cancer charity, something along the lines of the site where a guy sold pixels on a page.

    Im more than willing and able to contact companies and do the general leg work for something like this but my web skills are not up to scratch to pull this off properly.

    If anyone out there wants to get involved by offering ideas or skills it would be much appreciated as I doubt I could make it work alone.

    If you want to help out just reply or drop me a pm.


    Cheers

    Dave

    Hi, I would be more than happy to lend a helping hand with this. I lost a family member to Cancer in the last 2 years and I can't tink of a better way to put my skills to use.

    I'd be more then willing to help. I've got 2 months off as I've officially finished school now.

    I've got a private webserver (hosted by www.surpasshosting.com) that i can give space if you need it.

    I'd like to help out as well. If you don't take Hustle up on the offer, I can donate hosting. I'd love to donate programming time, but unfortunately I have none to spare
