Coping with cancer at such a young age is extremely difficult. Ward 27 at the Leicester Royal Infirmary provide specialist nurses and support workers for both children and young adults dealing with cancer. 7 young people are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK.
One patient in Ward 27 is Lucy. She is a fun, vibrant thirteen year old girl who is battling stage four cancer for the second time in two years. She is currently receiving chemotherapy which is taking its toll on her. Her tumors affect her spine and lungs. We've managed to personally meet Lucy and a few other patients who all remain remarkably positive and are a real inspiration to others.
A group of us have decided to embark upon various challenges including colouring our hair, a 35km bike ride across the Peak District and bungee jumping. We all deeply believe in this cause and want to raise as much as possible. All proceeds will go directly into fulfilling the Christmas wishes of the children.
⭐️ Please donate and let's make this Christmas extra special for these children ⭐️
Every person who donates will be entered into a raffle to win various prizes including:
A Leicester City football signed by Claudio Ranieri
£20 voucher for a health and beauty clinic
Restaurant vouchers of your choice
Complimentary Chauffeur Drive
