Together for Jan

Update posted by odaly On Dec 21, 2014

I do not have words to thank you all for your contributions!

I started this campaign in an outburst of desperation. I wanted to help Jan, make him feel better (if that is possible), put a smile on his face. I had many questions, thoughts, ideas, but unfortunately all of them implied money, and the only economical support we had was my mother's.

And now I feel glad to announce that we have raised more than 70% of our goal, which initially was 20,000 Euros. It does not reflect on this webpage because some friends chose to deposit directly on Jan's bank account.

As I am sure you want to know how Jan is doing, I will post updates on my blog odaly.wordpress.com and on Jan's facebook timeline www.facebook.com/jan.nordgreen. Since I write faster in Spanish, that's the language I will use.

Again, thank you so much for your help and your kind words of support!

Odaly.

Dear Odaly! I am writing to you as a former math student of Mr Nordgreen. At the British School of Tenerife he was my teacher in year 12 and 13, and I liked to think back of him as the best maths teacher during my school education. Also he always motivated the class in such a positive way, and I remember him telling us about motivational articles, to which I am still thinking back now. It came as a shock to me when I eventually realised that your pledge for donation showing up on my Facebook newsfeed, shared by one of my other former teachers, was about exactly this teacher that I liked to remember so thankfully (for helping us pass through A Levels, even though we had huge gaps about the subject, and for all the great advice given in class). I went on to read your blog about the whole story, and it touched me very much and left me in tears. Reading about all that had happened to your husband and your family brought back memories about the progression of illness of my mother who had also been suffering from cancer. I admire your courage and the way you are coping with the situation. Also I have found something on the internet, which I wanted to show you. I wasn't sure, if this would be helpful in Mr Nordgreen's situation or not (maybe at least until the speech training will show some success?), or if you had already considered something like that, but I thought it would be worth a try to at least send you the link: http://www.tobii.com/en/assistive-technology/global/products/software/compass-20/ I am wishing all the best to you and your family, I am hoping your situation will at least increase to some extend with the donations! Also a Merry Christmas time, I hope you will all be able to have many joyful rounds of card games! Rebecca

To all the family, it is indeed so very upsetting to see this image and read the events leading to Jans condition. They say that words have no meaning,but to know that so many people are moved tremendously by the familys situation,shows that you are not alone Jan.I can only say that you be spared as much pain as possible and that economically all the family will not suffer.If you are religious Jan,may you have the courage to fight and the serenity to accept,my prayers are with and for you,my sincerest wishes and hope,Teresa xxxx
