It's All about the Kids ...
Today, 10 children and
young people in the UK will hear the shocking news that
they have cancer.
Cancer is a terrible disease. I lost my dad when
I was 19. He was 55, which is still very young (1 year older
than I am today), but when cancer hits kids, we found ourselves
against that feeling of injustice, of 'why them'....
There is a Charity out there - amoung other of course - that
focuses on those children and their family. The name? Clic
Sargent for Children with Cancer.
CLIC Sargent was formed in 2005 after a successful merger
between CLIC and Sargent Cancer Care for Children (Sargent
Cancer Care for Children - founded in 1968 by Sylvia Darley
OBE, and CLIC - Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood -
founded in 1976).
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.
CLIC Sargent is the UKs leading cancer charity for children and
young people, and their families. They provide clinical,
practical, financial and emotional support to help them cope
with cancer and get the most out of life.
