      no. Not broadband. Not computers. cancer!!

      Sorry for the maybe off topic post but I felt compelled to write this. I heard about this young lad (19) who has terminal cancer. He had raised 1 million and after some media attention this has gone up to 2 million. When I was 16 years old (OK a long time ago now!) my dad died of cancer. I witnessed the person who was there for me wither away. Shrink. Die. It left a legacy in my mind.

      To enjoy life every day.

      I then have my own child. Wow!! How precious. Amazing. God I wish dad could see this! ! (can he??!)

      Now imagine that most precious thing gets diagnosed with a terminal illness.

      Oh God. What now? !

      Please please think. This lad is the bravest person I have ever heard off. Rather then be negative he's turned this into a fund raising mission. Totally selfless, It's not to help him but others.

      Please take a moment to think. Look at what you have. Can you spare 1?!


      I've edited this post a little, donating via Pay Pal wasn't the best option for tax reasons etc. Here's the direct link, please help if you can

      BBC News - Fundraiser Stephen Sutton dies at 19
      Teenage cancer fundraiser Stephen Sutton has died peacefully in his sleep, his mother said on his Facebook page.

      The 19-year-old, from Burntwood in Staffordshire, raised more than 3.2m for the Teenage Cancer Trust after news of his plight spread on social media.

      In a post announcing Stephen's death, Jane Sutton said he was a "courageous, selfless, inspirational son".

      Stephen was diagnosed with terminal cancer aged 15.

      Ms Sutton added: "The ongoing support and outpouring of love for Stephen will help greatly at this difficult time, in the same way as it helped Stephen throughout his journey."

      Stephen was readmitted to hospital on Sunday after developing breathing difficulties caused by the re-growth of tumours.

      He had initially set out to raise just 10,000 for charity, but his fundraising campaign attracted huge attention last month after he posted a 'final' selfie online.

      A number of celebrities and public figures paid tribute to Stephen after news of his death emerged.

      Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted: "I'm deeply saddened to hear that Stephen Sutton has died. His spirit, bravery and fundraising for cancer research were all an inspiration."
