Why your donation matters
Every day 10 more families hear the devastating news that their child has cancer. And in the coming year, we'll be needed as much as ever.
So we really appreciate your decision to support CLIC Sargent's vital work. You'll help us be there from diagnosis and right through treatment, making a very real difference to children, young people and their families who are living with the challenge of cancer.
How we can help:
Nurses who provide specialist care and support at hospitals and at home Social workers who support the whole family Play specialists who help children through treatment Youth specialists who can give age appropriate support Homes from Home to offer families somewhere to stay close to hospitals Financial support and a free information service available to all
Case study: donations in action
December is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and this year CLIC Sargent is highlighting the impact of cancer on the school life of younger children.
Our research - released this month - has identified a range of challenges that children face keeping up with their education and school friends during and after cancer treatment. We do all we can to help - our care professionals aim to support the whole family through treatment.
One little girl called Lola was teased when she returned to school because her hair had fallen out.
Her CLIC Sargent Nurse went into Lola’s school and did a finger prick blood test in front of Lola’s class. This showed her classmates how brave Lola is and since then, in her Mum’s words, Lola is ‘a little hero at school’.
We also provide information to support children, parents and teachers.
But we want to do more. Please help us by making a donation today, so we can be there to help children and families cope when the unimaginable happens.
