I thought with these dark and grey days with the weather (and MS) I would tell you a true story that is heartwarming.
As some of you already know I am a lifetime supporter of Bristol City football team (well, somebody has to) and one of their fans called Oskar is 6 and has cerebral palsy, and he uses a power chair.
He has been interviewed at Ashton Gate on a few occasions, and his greatest wish is to walk, but the operation he needs cannot be done here, but can be done in America, costing £50,000. So for the last year and a bit. fans and players have been doing all different things to raiise funds.
Last year when the target had almost been raised Bristol City were playing at home against Preston, and buckets were passed all around the ground, and with Preston fans help as well, Oskar’s target was reached.
Oskar and his Mum and Dad went to America, he had his operation and came home, where he has been having physio and working hard.
Next Tuesday evening Bristol City are at home to Preston, and it is planned that Oskar will walk out in front of his beloved reds, resulting in a very emotional Ashton Gate, thunderous applause and deafening singing of his name.
Oskar, I have everything crossed that your plan comes together, and that you go from strength to strength…go Oskar.
