With such a demanding challenge ahead of me I thought I would take the opportunity to endeavour to raise much needed funding for CLIC Sargent. The Charity is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. CLIC Sargent was formed in 2005 after a successful merger between CLIC and Sargent Cancer Care for Children.
Every day, 10 children and young people in the UK hear the shocking news they have cancer. Treatment normally starts immediately, is often given many miles from home and can last for up to three years. Being diagnosed with cancer is a frightening experience and the emotional, practical and financial implications of treatment are intensely challenging for the whole family. The Charity provides clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help the family cope with cancer and get the most out of life. CLIC Sargent are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
If you can help in any way, please do so.
Best wishes, Fraser.
