In 2008 Kaki was diagnosed with ALS which is a type of Motor Neurone Disease.
The average life expectancy of an ALS patient is between two and five years from onset of symptoms.
As there is no health care system in the States, Howard and Kaki’s family have to find the funds for Kaki’s care.
Kaki now lives in America with her elderly parents and requires 24 hour care whilst Howard lives in Austria with their two teenage children, Julian and Georgina. Whilst he would obviously like to be with Kaki, the only way he can contribute to her care is by working in Vienna where he has regular work. Unfortunately, he would have very little earning power in USA.
Howard and Kaki’s friend Pete Turvey is doing a 12 day 192 mile walk to raise funds for Kaki’s care. I will be joining him on one of those days and would very much appreciate it if you could ‘sponsor’ either me or Pete to help fund Kaki’s care over what will very likely be the last few months of her life.
If you are able to help, any funds you provide will be used directly for her care.

The fluffs and mispronunciations are kept in which makes it quite charming.
I've got two stories on there:
The Bear with no Hair
The Freckle Fairy (in which Emay is pronounced Emmy)
If you have young children you can leave your email address and they will email a link to their daily smory.
Or just browse through the smories.
A fun pre-bedtime experience if you have young children.
