One does indeed need to bounce back in this thing called life!Thank you.
Yeah you just get on with it. Tbh the "battles" when having a disability in the family make you almost immune to knock backs. Sure there is disappointment but it happens in so many aspects that you have to smile through it, if not for yourself then for your kids sake (as it is in my case).
The one thing you learn is that having a "investors in..." Type of accreditation means nothing when dealing with agencies and people.
With regard to charity though a lot of footballers do a lot of good things but are not in the media eye.
My lad used to get treated at birmingham children's. One Christmas Coventry City players came in to give all the kids presents. They stuck around talked to the kids and parents and were really great young lads. All this whilst Coventry FC were going through a really tough time.
Also heard really good things about likes of Craig Bellamy. Who isn't the most liked player. But has a heart of gold apparently doing charitable stuff
Charity work ought not to be about the light shed on the funder, but rather on those in need. Still, some of the celebs might need some of the light in order to not portray themselves as utter b***ends.
