I would love to hear or see pictures if you take part with any of my wishes and will read them on my birthday (21/12). My contact details are and Vikki C/O Post Pals, PO Box 278, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT23 4WN, England. Thank you


  1. Your wishes are so simple for healthy people to carry out. So sorry you're not able to do them yourself. I shall be writing Christmas Cards soon- just a few a day-I've watched Voices from the Shadows and we buy extra every week to go to our Church Food Bank- so that's 3 of your wishes I can do for you. Much love and many Blessings. Moira

  2. My girlfriend has wanted to join the bone marrow register for a while as her best friend died when she was 7 due to aplastic anaemia and needed a bone marrow transplant. Seeing this will push her into doing it. I hope all your wishes are fulfilled and that things get brighter for you in your 30th year. All my love, a former M.E sufferer (I'm proof there's hope.) xxxxxx

  3. Vikki: It's Becky Bunny's Mom from Canada & I'm planning to do up several Christmas cards for my brother ( he's nit able to do himself) to give to his new friends at our local nursing home. We just installed a brand new carbon monoxide/ smoke detector in our home.
    HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY & God Bless <3 Charlene

  4. Tweeted your story via BBC & tweeted your video for wish number 2. Hope it helps! Much love and best wishes for your birthday! xx

  5. Happy Birthday, Vikki! I tweeted your post, viewed your video and thought of you this a.m. as I watched the sun rise and spread its beautiful pink, yellow and orange colors over the sky. I spent my 30th birthday (and my 40th) in bed as well, but I did not get sick as young as you did. My heart truly goes out to you, and I admire your strength and courage. You've also inspired me to make a list of my own in an upcoming blog post -- so thank you for that!! Sending love and good wishes for your birthday. Hoping this new decade brings you improvements in your health.
