Update on #drwhodaniel

Most of you will be aware that over the Christmas period, we teamed up with our good friends at Geeksynsicate, to help a very ill Doctor Who fan have a truly great Christmas.

For those of you unaware, Daniel is a very ill 14-year old, who also happens to be massive Doctor Who fan. He was originally admitted to a London hospital in November 2015 and is still there, he was recently moved to the intensive care unit.

He suffers from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) and Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) he is totally bed bound and is fed via IV.

We had a tremendous start to the campaign, but since society’s christmas spirit has become a distant memory, the campaign has mostly come to a grinding hault. We had great success with Sylvester McCoy, Christopher Eccleston and, Peter Capaldi. Boy We’ve hit a total brick wall with contacting any of the other Doctors.

He would also love to meet any actor who has been involved with the show.

More recently, Daniel receieved an autograph from Simon Pegg and, a letter from Katy Manning.

The Twitter hashtag #drwhodaniel is still running and we would appreciate it if you could spread the word.

Below are the video messages Daniel has already received.

#drwhodaniel update 

Most of our readers will be aware that over the Christmas period, we teamed up with the lovely guys over at Geeksynsicate to help a very ill Doctor Who fan have a truly great Christmas.

For those of you unaware, Daniel is a very ill 14-year old, who also happens to be massive Doctor Who fan. 

He suffers from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) and Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) he is totally bed bound and is fed via IV. He was admitted to a London hospital in November 2015 and is still there, as of February 2016. He’s also facing the minimum of another 3 month stay. 

We had a tremendous start to the campaign, but we have started to stall now. We’ve hit a total brick wall with David Tennant and Matt Smith, both of whom Daniel would love to meet. 

The Twitter hashtag #drwhodaniel is still running and we would appreciate it if you could spread the word.

#drwhodaniel update video message from Christopher Eccleston and a visit from RealSFX

Well, just because it was the weekend it doesn’t mean our campaign has been resting on its laurels. Oh no.

Saturday saw Daniel receive a large Dalek, from a very kind Twitter user.

It also saw the realsfx team visit Daniel in hospital, they essentially brought the Doctor Who festival to his ward. They gave him a shed load of merchandise and even a Christmas tree. Daniel was also interviewed by the Daily Mail.


Sunday saw Daniel receive a video message from the ninth Doctor himself, Christopher Eccleston. The video is very sweet, very touching  and greatly appreciated by everyone involved in the campaign. What’s impressive is that for the most part, Eccleston did it in character.

We’ve had a great few weeks with the campaign, but we’re not yet done. We still need to get Doctor’s 4,5,6,8,10 and 11.

Update on #drwhodaniel a video message from Sylvester McCoy

As you will all be aware, along with Geeksyndicate we’ve been trying to help a very poorly Doctor Who fan have the best Christmas a fan could wish for.

Along with some other lovely fans, we’ve been spreading the word via the hashtag #DrWhoDaniel.

Over the past two weeks Daniel has been receiving gifts, cards, a visit from Frances Barber, a shed load of merch from Titan Comics, sketches by professional artists, a video message from Steven Moffat and even a visit from the twelfth Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi.

Today Daniel received a video message from the seventh Doctor, Sylvester McCoy.

Thank you to everyone who has been helping to brighten Daniel’s time in hospital. Peter Capaldi visiting didn’t just help Daniel, it helped bring morale to the entire Children’s ward.

Update on #drwhodaniel 

As some of you may be aware, we’ve teamed up with our friends over at Geeksyndicate, in an attempt to grant a Christmas wish for Daniel Norton, a very ill Doctor Who fan. 
  
In just six days, we’ve had an amazing outpouring of love from Doctor Who fans spreading the #drwhodaniel hashtag. The response has been great and in light of recent world events, it’s awesome to see so many people come together for a good cause.

A few days ago Barry from Geeksyndicate contacted Titan comics to see if there was anything they could do for Daniel and boy, did they come through. Just a day after Daniel received a hospital visit from Frances Barber, he received a lovely care package from Titan full of Doctor Who themed merchandise. 
  
Thanks to everyone who has spread the word about Daniel, this means so much to him, his family and the hospital staff that look after him. 

If you have anything you’d like to do for Daniel, then please give us a shout via the #drwhodaniel hashtag. 

Help for Daniel

We have recently partnered with Geeksyndicate, in an attempt to give a 14-year old boy a truly great Christmas. 
Daniel is a massive Doctor Who fan and was due to attend the recent Doctor Who festival in London, unfortunately his ill health prevented him from attending and he is currently in hospital. As you can guess, he was devastated to miss the event. 

Daniel suffers from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) and Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) he is totally bed bound in a London hospital, and is fed via IV. 

He would very much like to meet an actor from Doctor Who, especially an actor who has played The Doctor.

The Twitter hashtag #drwhodaniel has been set up to help spread the word. There is also a Facebook group

Frances Barber visited Daniel yesterday and it really boosted his morale. Click here to read what happened.
