Read through the whole post and am devastated - something you wouldn't wish on anyone and can't even imagine what they must be going through. I hope the turn out is a success! Let them know the BMW scene is aware and passes their best regards.

If we let the tour guide from Prodrive know, she might take Richard Burns' WRC scooby along.

This is about 30 mins away from me. Sadly it's also my missuses birthday and we have the whole family up.

I will let a few people know around here.

What incredibly devastating news. It puts all the petty things in life that get us down in perspective. May that young man's last few weeks on Earth be his best, and may a miracle save him. Wish I could be there. Much love from Hong Kong.

Man how totally devasted must his parents be! I was gutted reading that, as a father of 2 kids myself i'd totally go to pieces.

I sincerely hope this is a massive turnout for him.

Tragic.

Gutted reading that for the family - so hope he gets the day of his dreams and a few passenger rides as well.

Hi buddy, tried replying to your message, but your inbox must be full.

I have news regarding our earlier conversation.

Firstly... Jackie at Prodrive would like to invite your little man, wife and yourself to their HQ in Banbury, to sit in Colin and Richards championship winning scoobies, and maybe check out the Mini WRC ;-)

And secondly... Angela, (Malcolm wilsons PA) of M Sport Ford World Rally, team would like to do something for you all. And with Rally GB coming up, who knows ;-)*

May I take this time to thank both "Prodrive" and "M Sport" for showing their wonderful support at this time.*

Can you message me your contact number asap, so I can forward onto Jackie and Angela... They can call you and get things arranged. Thanks.

Hope you all enjoy

Regards & Best Wishes

Steve*

WOW... thats brilliant of them

An awfully sad story and only too common. This lad is known to us locally - http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/9896...ial___/?ref=mr

There is another terminally ill girl of 7 who goes to the same school as my boy aswell.

I hope they all live their last days with the love of their family surrounding them.
