Dear Publishers, Authors, and Friends:
On this day, I regret that I must share some very sad news with you. Amy, Park-Avenue Princess of Royal Reviews, has been admitted into the hospital. She isn't able to answer any emails or telephone calls personally at this time, so she asked that I, Vanessa, her friend of over twenty years to deliver this news and make you aware of what is going on at the present time.
I'm not sure I'll be able to deliver it with the style and cheer that Amy could, but I certainly will try!
I want each and every one of you to know that if you have any review requests, questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to either email here or to one of her private email addresses IAmHiMaintenance@aol.com or RoyalReviews@aol.com . Your emails will be answered and review requests taken. Kim and I are going to do the best we can to keep this running as smoothly as possible while she is gone. We will be checking RoyalReviews@aol.com daily, the other address seems to have more personal emails to her, so if they can wait, we'd rather have her read them and get back to you herself. Also, if you don't want to post here in the comments, please send her an email, I'm sure she'd love to know that you are thinking of her and that you are keeping her in your prayers. She is scared and really could use some cheering up.
Emails that request reviews, have personal messages or concerns that need to be addressed by her, will certainly be passed along. I plan to see her at least four times a week, and Kim (our other very good friend) will be visiting as well. Calls are made to her room daily and someone in her family is there all the time.
I do ask that you keep her in your thoughts and prayers and as soon as she can answer you herself, I know that she will. Amy is dedicated to each and every one of you and loves what she does. I know that she wishes you all success and will do anything to help.
The doctor's do not think that this will be a short stay. As some of you may know, Amy has been battling cancer for the past 14 years total. The type of cancer she has is rare and even rarer in women. She has malignant tumors and they're called Sarcomas. Ewing Sarcomas would be the name of the correct diagnoses.
It saddens all of us close to her that she is spending more time back in the hospital, including her Mother's Day.
We had to consult with her quite a bit before writing this letter to all of you - sharing this very personal information. Out of all the changes that were made, one thing remained constant and that was she wanted to share this information about her and her condition with all of you.
There are so many reviews that are written and waiting to be posted. (I would say more than fifteen to twenty). I apologize for being so far behind, but I know how meticulous she is about how she sets up her reviews. I need to find everything on her computer to get them posted. So, if you could be a little patient with me, I would be grateful. Once I'm in the swing of things, the give-a-ways will continue and I will update as much as possible (both with her reviews and her health).
Do not feel that you shouldn't send a request at this time. We're here to help.Thank you in advance for your kind courtesy and cooperation and I look forward to working with you.
