Story

Through personal experience, I have found that when a person is given the news they have a terminal illness, their world and that of their family and friends around them is irreparably torn apart. The steps they take from that moment on are crucial to the rest of their future.

Our motto is: 'You can't always change what happens to you, but you can always change how you respond to it' ... truth is life can be inexplicably cruel and unfortunately we cannot do anything to change the prognosis, but we can totally help inspire changes to the journey you and your family take from here on out.

We are a team fueled first and foremost by the desire to make a difference in people's lives; to inspire, to enrich and to bring some form of relief and lightness at what is such a horrific time. We hope through activities such as celebration of life parties, funeral planning, memory books, as well as providing assistance to the family – we want to celebrate someone’s life while they are still with us, communicating the feelings that need to be shared, memories made and to ultimately help family’s journey life fuller, making the most of every precious last priceless moment together, to say Goodbye well.

We will be doing lots of fundraising over the next few weeks such

If you would like to join us and help us raise much needed funds to register as a Charity (£5,000 needed) and to continue making a difference with families already fighting a terminal illness, please get in touch: abi@smithsacademy.co.uk
