believe me there is nothing worse than when your children get sick

when i was in sweden i put some pictures on the net of my daughters head

zipperhead i called her

and there is that big ugly zippered up scar on the back of her neck

but that scar filled me with dread and anxiety

around this time marianne in newcastle england was writing to me

her granddaughter jade has had a lot of operations

a lot of painful invasive awful operations and shes only fifteen

at an age when most kids are getting on with being teenagers

jade has been bravely and stoically coping with one thing after another

an operation to correct the last operation etc

shes undergone a lot for a teenaged girl !

anyway in newcastle theyre having a bit of a fundraiser

because these operations cost a fucking fortune

and

unable to attend that fundraiser

and wanting to do something

i have written a song for jade

and the money from all downloads will go straight to her family

now the song itself was problematical

i wanted to write something magnificent to exemplify jades struggle

this ideal nearly gave me writers block where ive never had it before

the immensity of my task seemed to stop me in my tracks

eventually i settled for a beatley/ glam rocky happy get better kinda song

i think you’ll like it

and believe me the money will be going to a very good cause

its a win/win situation

and jade will be in a lot of peoples hearts and prayers

go ahead now please

even if this is the only download you buy from me ever

and get a song for jade plus instrumental jade mix

its only $ 5 for 12 minutes plus worth of music

thank you

steve xxxxx

    I think this a very important time in each one of our lives to reach into our personal wealth and provide some needed assistance to this very noble cause –

    Let’s all join together and not turn away –

    Let’s make Steve proud and Jade feel the true definition of
    the word love –
    So She may triumph swiftly and begin the life of a magnificent
    teenager , remember how that felt – let’s get Jade there.

    Excellent all round effort Steve, and I personally wish all my very best to young Jade, she has my support. Being somewhat not a stranger to hospitals myself, I can empathize fully. Love the tracks too!

    Funnily enough, I was in Newcastle 3 weeks ago. Just bought this although I have no way of hearing it – I’m not saying that in order to brag of largesse but in the hope that any other download-luddites & digi-phobes outh there might do the same. Good on ya, Steve. Best wishes to Jade & family.

    can’t agree more with the first line of this post – have spent the last month in + out of various hospitals as my 9 year old son was having surgery treatment for recently diagnosed Crohns disease …experiencing the anxiety of parents in these situations is 1 thing we dont expect in life but bravery of kids is entirely humbling. Fortunately we have free healthcare in UK and thus 1 less thing to worry about – this is a great idea and I will download for sure !

      In total support here. revgreen10 I also have Crohns disease and have spent quite a bit of time therefore dealing with surgeries over the years. For a child going through similar medical traumas, when she/he is just starting out in their existence, it’s simply very tragic. All the best to young Jade & your son as well.

    Hi all,
    We had a fundraising evening for Jade and different cancer organisations last night. Jade is my granddaughter who at 15 has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that can only be treated with surgery. She will never have the all clear and will need body scans for the rest of her life to remove any tumours that appear. She is a very brave and beautiful young lady. Thank you for all your comments and for downloading. xx

      Our prayers and well wishes are with you in this challenging
      time…
      Please accept our love and may it empower Jade and her loving
      family to overcome every obstacle placed before her…

      With all our love,

      Jade –
      You are more beautiful than the sunshine which rises up
      and brightens every one of our worlds …
      Please Never Forget This !!!
