        Hi Vic. Great to hear from you - I am considerably better than six months ago and am going for an MOT at Addenbrooke's on Monday. Sadly I won't be able to go to the service at Ely this year. How are you doing? I hope all is well with you. All the very best Grant

        Hi Vic, thank you for your kind thoughts - it's good to hear you are being looked after, not via the old glass - and metal method! I have sold 250 books now, so pretty pleased. Take care

    Was Type 1 from the age of 11 months until 4 days before my 55th birthday, thanks to a kidney pancreas transplant in August 2013. Wrote Fifty Years of Malfunction as a result, the aim of which was to help others who may have direct or indirect experience of what I went through. All proceeds from the book go to the Transplant Department at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge.
