Scotland's Daily Record reports that J.K. Rowling responded to 12-year-old Breeze Gardner's request by donating an autographed copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to a charity auction.

" . . . [T]he book is expected to fetch more than £ 6000 when it is auctioned off next month.
Breeze had explained to JK how her wheelchair-bound mum Lesley, who suffers from ME, was raising cash for her local surgery in Strathblane, Stirlingshire.

Lesley, 48, is determined to repay the clinic where she is treated by helping buy a potentially life-saving ECG machine.


Thanks to Snitchseeker for passing this along.
