Three years ago, children’s author, Tommy Donbavand, was diagnosed with inoperable throat cancer. Since then, he has undergone appalling side-effects of numerous treatments and the associated medical conditions they brought with them. Now Tommy has been told his cancer is back and there is nothing more that can be done. He has “weeks or months” to live.
For years Tommy has worked to promote literacy in schools and libraries. Like most children’s authors, this provided the majority of his income, and being unable to run these events has drastically slashed his income.
This auction site was set up by a group of Tommy’s friends to help raise funds for him and his family. The love and respect for Tommy throughout the publishing industry is such that there are many unique experiences and items – mainly literary based, with every penny raised through the auction going to Tommy and his family.
