Subject: RE: BS: Money help needed
Thanks again Catters, especially all the free sensible help and advice from Richard. What a catch you must be!

The situation at the moment is that my sister (her mum) is in touch with a specialist lawyer in Leeds who are looking into what can or can't be done. We all hope we will get a pay out that will help my niece to get back on her feet and maybe pay off all our loans (we're not a rich family) but the need was too urgent to wait for that. She was in a lot of pain and a very scared young lady. She was trapped in Switzerland which seems to be extremely expensive. The chunk of money was needed immediately, and we're now looking into a sensible way forward.

My hope for my personal survival will be that there will be enough money in the pot to pay off NatWest but if not, then I only have 2 years and 10 months to pay. I'm young enough to do that and recover from it at the end, so things could be worse. I've just heard about another evening job which is better paid, so that will make things easier.

We all have great love for my niece and she is worth all the sacrifices the family is making and I just pray for her continued survival. She is doing very well indeed at the moment, rather better than expected in fact, and although university has been put off for a year or two I'm sure she will take up her place eventually as a fit and healthy young lady who will have been made stronger by all this.
