That's great news, David. As an 11 year cancer survivor, I feel that I can share in some of Anna's anxiety. The difference is that I have already lived my wonderful life on this earth and Anna is just beginning to live hers. I will hope for the best.

Sorry about the lack of updates, but Anna has not been up to too much.

Anna is seeing a psychiatrist for her anxiety (thanks to your Christmas donation!) and it is hoped she will soon be back to dancing and horseback riding.

Little sister Ella, aged 13, recently wrote this poem:

[Linked Image]



Depression is like a wilted butterfly,
It devours your heart as the days go by.
Hopelessness devours your soul,
as the heavyheartedness takes its toll.

Loss is relevant in your sorrow,
you wonder what mortification you will have tomorrow.
Dullness creeps into your open closet chest,
as the pity and sorrow never let you rest.

Depression is like a bottomless ocean,
it is full of darkness and of no devotion.
The tides of melancholia pull you in,
as the waves crash down of darkness and sin.

The hounds of mourn are coming closer,
as your discouragement grows and your body is over.
The nights of insomnia and numbering quite high,
as the depression is like a lullaby.
The sounds of madness are growing louder,
as the screams of abasement are growing fouler.

Depression is a broken heart,
it is ripped, it is bruised, and it is torn apart.
The light is consumed by all distraught,
We cannot fix it, can we not?


What a heavy load for a thirteen year old to bear!

God Bless Anna Mott

Through Facebook, Anna has become friends with another cancer survivor from across the pond. Her name is Kimberly. She too is a ballet dancer.

Recently the two met for the first time in Clearwater Florida.

In Melissa's words -

When Anna was diagnosed, Olivia took over her Instagram and would post photos and updates on her. One day, a beautiful young lady named Kimberley, from England, followed and commented something kind and supportive.

Over time, I don't remember the order, but Kimberley followed us, we followed her, and an online friendship developed, with us sharing with Anna, the sweet and encouraging things Kimberley would post to her. Anna and all of us were so thankful for all that support and love.

Fast forward to last year on World Cancer Day. Kimberley posted that she was, that very day, diagnosed with cancer for the second time in her life. We were devastated with and for her, and determined to show her the same love and support she had shown our family.

Who knew that one comment, on one Instagram account, followed from 4103 miles away, would spark a friendship between two families?

This past weekend we got to meet the Hattersley-Bartons in person when they came to meet us in Clearwater.

We met at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (that they had been to before and is across the street from the condo Steve's family has owned since the 1960's!). It is an amazing rescue center for lots of Florida wildlife such as turtles, dolphins, otters, etc. They are doing amazing work!

When we knew they were coming, I wrote the aquarium as I heard they look for inspiring stories to let folks meet Winter the dolphin. THE Winter, from "Dolphin Tale". Anna fell in love with the dolphins there when she was little and Kim and her family have seen the movies and love them. We hoped they would think our girls were inspiring..and they sure did!

The girls were royal VIPs for the day with a tour into areas no one gets to go, a goody bag, a private interview with the CEO (on film with us parents too!), a private meeting with one of the stars of the movies, Nathan Gamble, and they got to feed and interact with Winter and Hope. It was so lovely, the whole thing, including our two guides who we grew to love in a very short time!!

[Linked Image]


[Linked Image]


But the most lovely part for our family was getting to see and hug Kimberley, Jessamyn, Claire and Chris in person there. And to talk to them and share stories of HOPE and PERSEVERANCE. And to connect with a family who knows the pain of childhood cancer but more than that, knows the value of life and living!

[Linked Image]


It's incredible, the things that can happen when a teenage girl reaches out to another one, on social media, with a lovely, supportive comment. You never know how you can touch a life.

[Linked Image]

Kimberley and her family sure have touched ours.


God Bless Anna Mott

Hard to believe, but Anna will be 21 this May 21st.

Time once again for her birthday fundraiser.

As mentioned earlier, your donations pay for Anna's psychiatrist visits for her anxiety. Not "help to pay" but "pay", as in 100 percent.

Anna is not as anxious now, but she is often sad to the point of tears about her blindness...

[Linked Image]

The goal is $5,000 for the big two one birthday. She can have a beer then!

[Linked Image]

To donate via paypal , my email is sdduke@bellsouth.net. Mention Anna Mott in the message field. Denote as a gift.

To donate via check, make check out to me (David Duke) and say Anna Mott in the memo field of the check.

My address is:

David Duke
378 North Peachtree Street
Norcross GA 30071

Thank you all!

God Bless Anna Mott

Let's do this, lads. I'll be getting something out soon. Might not be a lot. Just got out of the hospital myself. But something.

Never known such a problem with screen displays, and I was in the biz for 20 years! Gotta be a virus or something.

Address is

]If you can, try to send a card that has some texture to it, or one of those cards that sings a song when you open it. If not, that is fine too!

It is difficult to put into words how uplifting it is to Anna and her family when she gets cards and gifts from you all.

Just knowing she is remembered means so much to the Mott family.
