We work with families, hospitals, and hospices across the UK supporting palliative cancer patients from 0-25 years old.

The ways we help young cancer patients

Memory Making

We offer young cancer patients Cash Gifts to spend as they wish. We want to brighten their day by allowing them to do whatever it is that they enjoy the most, enabling them to spend quality time with the people who matter while giving them a sense of control over their lives and normality amongst the chaos.

Our Cash Gifts have been spent on a range of things such as family holidays, shopping sprees in a toy store, personal firework displays, weddings, blessings and opportunities to say thank you.

Keepsakes

We fund hand-made personalised fingerprint jewellery for loved ones to use as keepsakes.

Glass hearts can be engraved with hand written messages, a verse from a song or a favourite saying.

Hand casting kits are sent to families to create their own meaningful moment that can be painted or cast in bronze.

Activities are provided in the form a memory box for a young patient to concentrate on their lives and loved ones.

Creative Therapy

We provide activity boxes for young cancer patients to use during periods of treatment. These are sent to hospitals throughout the country to provide a creative focus and essential distraction during visits to day units or longer stays.

Our latest service currently being developed will support families through our new Sibling Boxes. The contents will offer a talking point for the family to prepare for what lies ahead and give an opportunity for siblings to ask those difficult questions surrounding death and dying.

Get involved

We know you care about improving the lives of children and young people living with cancer as much as we do. If you want to become part of our force for change, there has never been a better time. 

There are so many ways to get involved in your local area, even from the comfort of your own bed. Whether it’s through volunteering, donating, or creating a fundraising event, any contribution you can make to our cause will have a real and immediate impact on a palliative patient.  

Motivation for May

My dad always used to tell me something when we first started running together: “Don’t judge someone for how quick they’re going; you don’t know how far they’ve run.” He was always keen to make sure I had an idea of perspective; you can never tell just how hard someone is fighting based on your perception. You can never know someone’s full journey based on where they are now. You need perspective. You need to understand that this might be the 20th mile they’ve run, so of course they’re moving more slowly than you would having only ran the last 200m. You need to understand that they could be recovering from an injury, or that today is their recovery run. You especially need to realise that just because you
