The last year has been challenging for everyone and life has changed beyond recognition. Like many organisations we have had to adapt how we deliver our services to meet the needs of children and young people impacted by cancer who are particularly vulnerable during the pandemic.
The Daisy News is just one of the ways we keep our supporters and families up to date with our latest news and events and how your donations are continuing to make a difference to families living with cancer.
In this edition, we are delighted to share that from April our Team of Cancer Support Specialists were once again able to provide children and young people with face-to-face support at home and in their communities. You will meet Anne Gordon, one of our Cancer Support Specialists, whose role is to provide therapeutic support to families during their short break in Daisy Lodge. Mum, Ciara Daly from Lisburn, also shares her experience of being diagnosed with breast cancer and how her family’s short break was a ‘warm and welcome break’ from one of the toughest challenges her family ever experienced.
We also thank YOU our incredible supporters for being by our side throughout the pandemic. You truly have gone the extra mile to support children, young people, and families struggling to cope with the emotional impact of cancer. Your continued generosity and kindness will help us ensure that no child or young person has to face cancer alone.
