I plucked up the courage yesterday to phone the christian lewis trust to ask for their help with our next trip.
They have a fantastci service where we can book virgin flights for the 6 of us but we dont have to pay for until 2 weeks before we go so if anything happens which means we cant go we dont lose any money !!
We used this service along with their villa in 2002 and the villa was gorgeous !! Well she said we can gladly book flights through them and se offered me the use of their villa again for 7 days - i cant believe how nice they were - even said we should have asked this year :lovestruc I really am blown away with the fact that she didnt think i was being cheeky and she did say they can also help with the adrs we want - so really absolutly no stress at all !!!
So we are sticking wit the idea of seeing the xmas things and aiming for the dates of 27 nov till 12th dec 2010 - hopefully cam will be healthy by then :wizard:
The only thing thats going to be really difficult is not letting onto the kids can we can defo go back !!! :woohoo:

It is a fantastic organisation and they really do understand the need to have someting good to look forward to :banana:
The biggest fear for us when we book wdw is that we always have the potential to lose so much money if ds health takes a turn for the worse so this is invaluable for us as we really can plan ahead now and the price that virgin quote them stays the same no matter what.
Maybe not the cheapest flight we could get but none the less one we are happy to pay because of the fact that we are not tied to it or paying the premuim to have the right to cancel.
didnt think it was possible to be this excited with 14 months still to go :rotfl2:

This is great news for all of you.
From reading your trip reports Cam always seem to benefit hugely from his trips to the World so I hope that the same applies this time around.

Enjoy all your stress free planning :thumbsup2

There are lots of people who would get great pleasure from helping you deal with your difficult situation with Cam, so always ask. That's not being cheeky. That's giving others a chance to do something that will make them feel good, too.

And you're absolutely right--something to look forward to helps get through those difficult days.

Hugs, Susan

Wow, that's fabulous news. I have just googled the Christian Lewis trust, as I had never heard of them. What fabulous work they do (and Welsh too!). Anyone else reading this, it might be an idea to check out their website as it seems they are very much in need - and very deserving of additional funds.


Louise, good luck to you and your family, and have a fabulous time planning your trip :goodvibes

Hi not sure when we are going to tell them its very tempting to tell them now and watch them grin from ear to ear but we have had to cancel so much this year that i dont want to add another disappointment to the list so i guess when we know Cam is on the road to recovery thats when we will tell the kids !!!!

thats fab, just keep yourself grounded are they ll guess;)
hope cam is better,

Cam is doing great today tracey - he is well enough to go back to school tomorrow and then we will find out the next step of his treatment on the 21st - fingers crossed its good news !!!
