Situation

Many families the charity supports are on a low income as a result of giving up work in order to care for their child. This means that when faced with the devastating news that there are no further treatment options available, they simply cannot afford to do the special things that they so desperately want to do with the limited time they have. Each year the charity is inundated with requests from families who wish to hold an extra-special Christmas, or celebrate Christmas early.

Solution

Christmas at Home will provide the funds for young cancer patients and their families to enjoy Christmas away from hospital, helping to create happy and lasting memories together. Some families with very limited time may choose to hold their celebrations early so that they will always have memories of their last Christmas together to treasure forever.
