Remission Possible

Developing a new look for remission possible

I’ve taken over responsibility for the Remission Possible website which is currently hosted on WordPress.com

The plan is to develop a new look for the site then migrate the content over before relaunching the site along with a calendar of fundraising events.

Easy…

So here I will keep track of what I’ve done in case I ever need to retrace/work out what I did.

Step 1

Installing a fresh copy of wordpress on a subdomain of galiquis to start developing the new look…once it’s all ready switch it to the main domain address for remission possible.

  • Create new folder
  • Create new subdomain pointint to new folder
  • Create new Database
  • SSH into 1and1
  • cd to correct folder
  • wget https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz –no-check-certificate
    I needed to add the cert check
  • untar the file – tar xfvz latest.tar.gz
  • mv ./wordpress/* ./
  • Now go to the new domain which should then initiate the config of WP

All done!

Peace

Emily

Well life does have a way of pulling the rug from under you when things are going well…

Emily lost her battle – not to the cancer she beat twice – but to the numerous infections her newly transplanted Spanish immune system couldn’t fight off.

And to be honest it’s hit me for 6!

Obviously because of the shock of losing a member of the family at such a young age (18), partly because I genuinely never contemplated her not beating it completely and having a great life ahead of her. But mostly because in Emily I saw a reflection of all the things that I’ve aspired to be over the years.

Intimidatingly talented, both intellectually and spiritually – a true inspiration and rarity these days.

So…

The fight goes on – through those left behind for those left with the same battle on their hands.

Emily wanted to leave a legacy – wanted to inspire, campaign and educate people on the cancer that came into her life. Well that will be her legacy. Remission possible, the blog/capaign she started will live on as a charity in its own right – continuing her work. This year will be filled with fundraising to help build a ward for teenage cancer patients in her name… but it won’t stop there I feel.

Peace
