A RUGBY author has written an inspirational true story about a young boy who helped others while fighting his own battle against brain cancer.
Simon Goodyear hopes his true account of Harry Moseley’s ambitions and compassionate outlook on life shows that with hard work and determination anyone can their goals.
Simon contacted Harry’s mum Georgina via Twitter several weeks after Harry’s death in October 2011 and told her of his idea of writing a book.
Simon said: “Little did I know that it was one of Harry’s dreams to have a book written about himself, so when Georgina agreed for me to write it, I was excited and honoured.”
The book is an emotional, heart-warming and truly inspirational account – told by Harry’s mum and soul mate, Georgina.
“Harry’s dream of helping others has changed the lives of millions,” added Simon.
Harry was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2007 at the age of seven.
He gripped the nation by making and selling beaded bracelets all by himself, with the proceeds he raised going to charity.
During his fight against brain cancer, Harry befriended many people via his Twitter account, including adults and children, younger and older than himself, from all sorts of backgrounds.
He also captured the hearts and minds of many famous celebrities and sports stars.
When Harry died nearly a year ago, he had raised £650,000 for his chosen charities and this has now risen to over £1.1 million.
His legacy lives on and his dreams are now starting to become reality, thanks to his mum and his army of followers who continue to kindly organise events in his memory.
The Harry Moseley Story is now available in bookshops priced at £9.99, or via download at Amazon and iTunes.
