My family did a surprise party for me on Saturday. I never knew a thing.

Everything was done in the scleroderma colours. There were raffles and so much more all dressed in fancy dress. They raised £240 pounds for Scleroderma.

I am so proud of them keeping this as a surprise. On the Sunday that was my birthday, they took me out for a meal. I had to wait for the cab....... it was a limo!! I have never been so spoiled and surprised.

The icing on the day was the money they raised. I am blessed with a good caring family.

Hi Lynn,

What a lovely thing to happen, obviously it couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

You will treasure this birthday for many years to come I am sure.

Best Wishes for a good year ahead.
