Over the last few months life has changed beyond recognition. Like many organisations we have had change how we work to meet the needs of children and young people impacted by cancer. The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact not only on how we support children and families but also on our ability to fundraise.
In July we were once again able to welcome families back to Daisy Lodge for a much needed therapeutic short break. In this edition of our ‘Together Through Cancer’ newsletter you can read about the measures we have put in place at Daisy Lodge to ensure the comfort and safety of children and families impacted by cancer. You will also hear from one of the first families to benefit from a nurturing break.
September is a significant month in our annual calendar as it is International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. On page 4 and 5 of our newsletter you can read more about the impact and challenges families face and hear from some of the incredibly brave families.
We also thank YOU our incredible supporters for being by our side throughout the pandemic. We have been humbled by your generosity and kindness which will help ensure that children and young people do not have to face cancer alone.
