Hi all, Just a quick note to accompany the emails we've just sent out. As some of our closer friends would have seen, the last two weeks have been very hectic for us as we have spent virtually all of our time at QE2 hospital in Brisbane with my partners sister as her journey with terminal cancer came to an end. We have spent all day catching up on orders today to ensure that everyone has their Christmas orders before Christmas. We apologise for the delay, and appreciate everyones understanding. You can read about Cherie's journey here (last section) - "We fought cancer and won" - body+soul And here - Big rise in young with bowel cancer - Yahoo!7 In the coming weeks we will post some auctions for high-end herp books to raise money for the establishment of a marine research grant in Cherie's name.
