Did I Help You or Your Relative or Friend on the UK NHS 999 Emergency Ambulances?

I rarely heard about the outcome of the patients that I helped. I have letters of commendation about heart attack survivors that we found dead and later walked from hospital alive, I saw, heard and will never forget the first cry of newborn babies.

I hope the rest of you are OK, the fact that I helped you in your darkest hours offers me hope and comfort in these dark times!

What Happened to R.K. Alker Kids Author on the 999 Trucks?

After helping 6,000 people in 6 years, my NHS 999 emergency ambulance career was sadly ended by an injury in the line of duty during lockdown – now I need your help! 

It has been a privilege and an honour to serve the people of this country on the Emergency 999 Ambulances for North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

How Do I Need Help? – I Need A Publisher for My Funny Kids Book

An adventure in my imagination allowed me to escape my broken body. I fulfilled a 30-year ambition and wrote a funny kids’ book for age 7+ for my children whilst recovering from my injuries. I now seek a publisher for my book – do you know a publisher?

I now seek to illustrate and publish my funny book for children aged 7 years and above – part of the proceeds will go to help local children’s charity.

Any donation amount is great! – For a brilliant £15 donation (or more!) I will send you a copy of the finished book if you like!

What did I do on the UK 999 Emergency Ambulances?

Donate and help fund a funny kids book by RK Alker Children's Author with some kids laughing and having fun dressed as 999 emergency ambulance people
This is who I wrote this book for – for kids, for all the kids.

Everything from the beginning of life – delivering babies, through trips, falls, cuts, bruises, breaks, road traffic and major incidents to life-saving work at the end of life.

I had so many good experiences alongside the more difficult parts of the 999 work – I did not deserve my final exit.

When I was injured, these little girls gave me focus and ambition during my darkest hours. Ironically, it was my kids that saved my life!

So, I once again venture alone into the unknown… but am I alone?

Hopefully not, I have received many messages of support, for which I am very grateful.

I find great encouragement in your words and I have even been asked about donations and how to help fund my book?

Before I took on the 999 ambulance role I was an award-winning web designer and a popular early social media videologger or vlogger. I vlogged my adventures appearing on TV, Radio & Press and fun at events up and down the country as The ChilliMan. See more in the Press Section HERE.

Whilst injured, I updated my digital skills and became so good at website design, social media and search engine optimisation (SEO) in building my Google-Topping Kids’ Author Website that I have been asked for web design and social media services – please get in touch if you need those too.

I will update this final section here and email you if I manage to get my book funded – I would be happy to supply you with the finished book illustrated for 7-year-olds and above.
