Disneyland and pixie dust...

Disneyland and pixie dust...

In his book "Peter Pan" J.M Barrie wrote that "All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.”

In early October pixie dust for our family was provided by TechWell and Alison Wade who were enormously kind and generous and gave us a magical present: a visit to Disneyland & a room in the Disney Hotel.

We cannot thank you enough for this since it gave us unforgettable days for our family and made Kristians and Linneas dream come true.


We all four were riding on Linneas favorite ride "Jumping Jellyfish" for a 5th time in a row and I looked over the beautiful surroundings and I saw my kids and Kristoffer laughing. The honey-colored Californian sunset colored their hair, the easy warm wind carried our laughter around and right there on that Jumping Jellyfish I started crying. Not because I was sad, or afraid, or immensely worried. No. I cried because I was happy, because we all four were there happy and somehow magically worries couldn't reach us at Disneyland. We were happy and protected by Merida from "Brave", by Godmother from "Cinderella", by Elsa from "Frost", by Beast from "Beauty and the Beast".

We checked out from the Cancerland and checked in at Disneyland. And it was wonderful, magical and unforgettable.
Thank you for the pixie dust, Alison & TechWell

Christine Karlsson, who works at the Small Animal Clinic ("Smådjurskliniken) in Karlskrona, contacted us and offered to arrange an event aimed at raising money for Linnea.

It was a fantastic day with camel and donkey riding, archery and much more.
Thank you so much for the help Christine and what you did, we were very moved.

YSDS - Your Special Delivery Service

In the summer of 2017, we were offered by the University of Monterrey who manufactured Linnea's immunotherapy to base her treatment on the biopsy of her own tumor.

This was something that had never been done before for DIPG patients and we were very excited about this possibility as the treatment becomes significantly more effective if it is based on the patient's own biopsy of the tumor.

But there was a problem ... how could we ship the tumor material, which is extremely temperature sensitive, in a speedy manner for a limited time all over the world without getting stuck in any of the customs of the countries it passed?

Fortunately, we found a specialized logistics company in Stockholm and with offices around the world, "YSDS - Your Special Delivery Service", which specializes in these types of unique deliveries.

https://www.ysds.com/

We can not thank YSDS enough and praise their extremely professional way of handling the case, keeping us informed, and helping us get the tumor shipped.
As if this were not enough, YSDS did not want to hear talk about charging us for the service but instead informed us that this was their way of supporting Linnea of her treatment in Mexico!

What a wonderful company, thanks YSDS!
