“We went off to Jean’s House, I sat in the kitchen, being there with Lorraine (Home from Home Manager) was so lovely, she didn’t say ‘it was going to be alright’ or anything, she was so wonderful, made me tea, made me distracted.” Emma, mum to Aleesha, diagnosed with Leukaemia aged 13.
Where does the money go?
£20 could pay for a kettle and supplies so that the staff in our Homes from Home can make families staying a cuppa after a hard day.
We treat all Virtual Gifts as donations to Young Lives vs Cancer and will spend the money wherever the need is greatest in ensuring that no family faces the fear of cancer alone.
