If you could all go donate whatever you can to wee Caleb, it would be greatly appreciated. He's going over again now soon, so it would be great if we could raise a few pound for him and his family

Hi guys!
As you know, I am hoping to spread awareness to all local schools in September for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, during which time, I'll also be running a few competitions. One of these includes the very generous 2018 First Communion Dress from the wonderful Elaine McCloskey for the second year running. This will be the same as last year, £20 per bonus ball. I also won a custom Lightsaber and purchased a Reborn Baby Girl which I'll be raffling too. If you can donate a present/prize please get in touch. You can also make a donation for Children's Cancer Awareness Month. I won't be having a Fashion Show this year, as I simply haven't been well enough to organise it, but I will be making up for it at Christmas!
Thanks
Jamie

Hi guys!
I’ve had a pretty bad infection these last couple of weeks, and have been up and down, but I think I’ve finally began to get over it- still resting plenty, but I can actually stand up without passing out or throwing up (for the most part).
As I’m sure you’re all aware, Thursday was results day for AS and A2. You all know that my exams almost killed me, but I’m very happy to say that I did amazingly in my AS Levels, so bring on the second half of my A Levels this year! I’d like to thank everyone who has helped me over the past year, especially all the staff at Lumen Christi, and my amazing, supportive parents… I’d be lost without you.
In other news, I’d like to say a massive thank you to Elaine McCloskey for offering a prize for a bonus ball to kick off Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! A First Communion dress, headdress, veil, bag, and shoes to the value of £500, so make sure you get on that if you know someone with a First Communion coming up! Thank you so much, Elaine!
Finally, I’d just like to say thank you for any schools who’ve came forward to have me give my little talk, I’ll be in touch with you all in the next week or so to try and iron out some dates.
Hope you all enjoy this last weekend before school’s back!

Hi everyone!
I’m finally back! It’s been a very laid-back summer for me and the family. Lots of R&R (although I could still use about another month or two before going back to school if I’m honest) but I’m back at it now, because I couldn’t let a September pass without going all out with my awareness raising. I’d like to think that over the last few years that I’ve increased awareness of childhood cancer quite substantially in the NW, but there’s something that I’ve wanted to do for quite some time, and I think now is the perfect time to do it.
I had the idea at some stage earlier this year of going around as many schools in the Derry area to deliver presentations to faculty at primary schools, and pupils at secondary schools in order to inform them of the signs of cancer, how to catch it early, and what to do if they suspect something. This is going to be my big thing for September, and obviously I’m going to have to do it on school time, but it’ll be worth it. The first couple of emails should be going out at some stage over the next few weeks, as I do have a couple of schools that I’d particularly like to do first, but if you’re at a school that you think would benefit from me doing my little talk, then please get in touch!
It’s good to be back.

Hi everyone,

Just starting to come around again from my stint in The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London! They sure put me through hell but I must say a massive thank you to all of the team who cared and will continue to care for me! They were so kind! My specialist nurse even gave me a job which I hope to do some day for her! Finally filling in the jig saw that's my health but I will continue to push and reach for my goals!

An enormous shout out to the success of the first Legenderry Relay for life by Cancer research! Especially to our very own Survivors and to our very own "Rory's Rockets!"
I wish I had have been there! Pics look amazing! It's great to see Derry being so pro active!
Jamie!

Hi everyone! Sorry you haven't heard from me in a while, I've just been flat out with exams, and my mum has been in hospital very unwell. Thankfully, my last exam is tomorrow, and on Sunday, I (finally) travel to London to a specialist hospital, which as you all know, I've been waiting on for some time now. Before we go over, we had a few things to tie up, and one of them was the next​ Sorcha's Surprise. Alexandra Johnston was chosen to be the next recipient of Sorcha's Surprises, so we donated £1000 towards a family holiday for the Johnsons this summer, and I'm delighted to say that we were able to do this today. Alexandra is fighting Ewing's sarcoma for the third time, and hopefully this money will go some way towards giving the family a much needed break. I personally know how important these times are to families. I know that I'll be traveling to London on Sunday, so I wish my dad an early happy Father's day. I know for a fact that I wouldn't be standing here today if it wasn't for my dad, and more importantly, I wouldn't be the man that I am today without his wisdom, guidance, and support. Happy Father's day, Dad, from me and Faith.

With all that said, I'm going on a well deserved break for a while, after this Hell of a year, so I can come back stronger and continue to change the cancer Journie of kids in the North West. I'll keep you posted on how I get on in London.

Hi guys!! I just wanted to post a quick wee update! For the past few weeks, we've been planning a wee day up to Strawberry Cottages in Malin Head for several of our Supermums, and this was supposed to happen yesterday, but alas, my own Supermum was admitted to hospital on Friday with a serious chest infection, so we decided to postpone the mum's evening as none of them wanted to go without her! She's still in and doing a bit better!! I've got my second chemistry exam tomorrow and I'm hoping​ to come home to her, but it's looking a little unlikely. Get well soon, mum xx

Hi everyone! I've been meaning to write this for ages, but I've been drowining in studying (I have five exams this week), so in this brief couple of hours of downtime, I'd like to express a massive thank you to several groups.
Firstly, to the A2 Business Studies class at Lumen Christi for everything they’ve done over the last few months, including a bake sale, raffle, and selling candy canes at Christmas. It means so much to me personally whenever people my age decide to do stuff for Jamie’s Journie, so thank you all so much.
Next, I’d like to thank Louise and Samantha who raised £523.17 and the Allstate Charity Commission who raised £560.
Finally, I’d like to say a massive thank you to Oakgrove Primary School who raised an incredible £550 pounds in their non-uniform day on behalf of #TeamSorcha
Without people like this, Jamie’s Journie wouldn’t be possible, and I have some pretty big things planned for over the summer and into September which I can’t wait to share, but that I have to keep tight lipped about at the minute, so watch this space next week!
