Thank you for your support!
We know it’s a tough Christmas for many people having to cope with the cost of living crisis, so we have been overwhelmed by the support you have given children and adults with cancer.
With your help we are well on our way to funding almost 1,000 Cuddles for Christmas teds to be sent to hospital beds, along with nearly 500 Bags of Smiles – goody bags packed full of toys and games to bring a smile to a little face.
Donors like you have also helped us to fill hundreds of Cancer Kits to help children, elderly cancer patients and other adults undergoing treatment for cancer. Your gift will send comfort and joy at what is a very difficult time for so many people.
Here are some Christmas messages from Finnie, Imogen and Tiernan, to say a very big THANK YOU!
Here’s Finnie showing you the contents of the Kids’ Kit he received whilst undergoing treatment.
His mum told us: “Finnie loves painting, drawing and puzzles. So the Kid’s Kit you sent him was fantastic, as it contained lots of practical things to keep him busy and take his mind off treatment. The puzzle book is filled with lots of popular children’s games – a great way to keep the brain stimulated, while having fun.
As Finnie is an avid reader, the animal bookmark, with its little furry friend on the top, has been particularly useful. However, his favourite item is the pair of cosy Minion socks, which has helped to keep his toes warm and snug. We keep them in his hospital bag ready for admission.
Finnie’s prognosis is good and we are hopeful that in May 2023, he will ring the bell to signify the end of his treatment.”
And here’s Tiernan with Mr Cuddles!
He received a Cuddles for Christmas bear last year thanks to a donor just like you. Thanks to your support we’ve sent out 1,000 teds to hospital beds this Christmas.
And finally little Imogen with her bunny, received in a Kids’ Kit
These are just some of the thousands of children and adults you’ve helped this Christmas.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
