Story

Specially adapted pyjamas for cancer children.

Our 9 year old daughter Betsi, was diagnosed with a rare cancer called Ewing Sarcoma in November 2021. You can find out more about Betsi’s journey on Instagram @betsiatthemarsden and more on what Real Eazy are about.

As she went through her chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment, she was constantly monitored and cared for by the amazing medical professionals and support staff, across multiple hospitals in London and the surrounding areas.

Whilst undergoing her treatment, it soon became apparent that as part of her care she was often disturbed, whilst resting or sleeping, to access her medical lines.

During chemotherapy the access required was more frequent both day and night, and required either partial or total removal of her sleepwear.

This was obviously vital to her care, but at a time when she was at her weakest and needed to rest as much as possible.

This was the trigger that inspired us to design sleepwear that would allow medical access with minimal movement, allowing the child to rest and not feel self-conscious.

The situation the children are going through is already extremely challenging and hard to deal with. They are often left feeling vulnerable and that they look a certain way different to others, so the pyjamas will help them to feel more comfortable, but also look more ‘normal’ and this is where and why the idea of the adaptive pyjamas was born.

Our goal is for every child in the UK who is receiving treatment for cancer to give a set of our specially adapted sleepwear pyjamas. We know there is more than 1,000 children in treatment currently but if we start here we hope to get to everyone.

We would like to thank you for your support and do keep following and sharing as this also will play a bit part in trying to make sure everyone who is in need can benefit.

Thank you.
