Imagine you are 7 years old and going into hospital tomorrow to start treatment to get rid of your cancer.
You don't understand what is going on, you're worried about leaving your friends or what is going to happen about missing school? Are your mum and dad going to be allowed to stay overnight?
So when you arrive to a bright, child-friendly and fun unit which has playrooms for you to make new friends, spacious bedrooms for you and your family and a brand new suite for when you need to have your chemotherapy, it makes a massive difference to calming your nerves and helping you respond positively to the 100s of visits you're likely to make during the course of your treatment.
But unfortunately our current cancer unit is not as we have described above. Instead, it is over 30 years old, and demand has outgrown capacity.
We need your help to create one of the largest Children's Cancer Centres in the UK. Please decide to help us today and we can raise £4m to improve the experience of patients, their families and the staff who care for them.
Many of the families we meet are overwhelmed to find out that they are being helped by the kindness of strangers. They feel moved that someone they don't know has been kind enough to make a donation to support them and their child.
Your support will help us create a light, spacious and purpose built unit for our patients who come to us from as far as John O'Groats or Lands End for the very best treatment in the UK.
Please help us.
