Palace of care/I think therefore I am? Special Edition – Project #ffsflame

A community of practice is a group of like-minded people who come together to work on a shared goal or cause. One of the core ideas behind Palliverse is that we want to form a virtual community of practice and translate it into a real world community of practice. This is in order to foster community spirit to make a difference in the world, in the form of global access to palliative care.

Palliverse is also  an ongoing tribute to the power of words. This was illustrated last November with the realisation of project #getjakbak, where-by last-minute crowd-funding on the fly enabled a dying man to go home to his family.

Project #ffsflame is a bit different in that it is a personal project of mine and is aimed at keeping one of my favourite people in the world from requiring palliative care services.

Who is FF?

FF is a member of my inner circle and has become very unwell with Liquid Malignant badness (blood cancer.) FF is one of the hardest working people on the planet, she is married and is the mother of two lovely kids, both under six years old.

The following word pairs are listed in an effort to describe her:
family first

fabulous friend
feisty female
fantastic free-spirit
focused foxy-lady
fulla fun
faithful facilitator
friendly face
fail-safe flexibility
forever fair-natured
farseeing freshness
fluent finesse
freckled flower

FF is not used to asking for, or receiving help as she is usually the one helping everyone else, but now is a time where she needs all the help she can get.

FF is scheduled to start her first cycle of chemotherapy early next week, and has to leave her home and young family to do so.

FF needs your moral(e) support.

To take part in a demonstration of the power of words and human connection, please leave a message in the comments section, or tweet to #ffsflame to keep her fire burning.

Please spread this request to all of your social media networks.

Thank you,

James
