Weʼre raising £7,500 to Make a dream come true, help us send Jemma, who is terminally ill; and her little family, to see Santa Claus in magical Rovaniemi, Lapland.

Don't have time to donate right now?

Story

In August 2016, when Jemma was 17 weeks pregnant with her first baby (Sadie), she had stage 1 ovarian cancer removed surgically.

On the 9th January 2021 and at 35 weeks pregnant with her third little baby, Jemma‘s heartbreak continued when she found a lump.

Then on 25th January 2021, baby Betty was delivered by C-Section and the growth was removed for Biopsy. The next day, a CT scan showed a tumour in Jemma's left lung as well as three tumours on her pelvic bones.

On the 9th February 2021, Jemma was diagnosised with Advanced Stage 4 Incurable Ovarian Cancer and on 10th May 2021 Jemma was given the devastating news that she has less than a year to live.

We had only met Jemma on a few occassions before her recent cancer diagnosis, but her infectious smile, warm personality and determination in life, really shone through. Wonderful qualities in a wonderful person.

We see that determination even more so in her now, and we desperately wanted to do something to help.

Over the years, we have helped so many families travel to Lapland, this year we want to help Jemma and her family make some special everlasting memories On an all expenses paid, once in a lifetime magical trip to see Santa Claus in his hometown in Finnish Lapland.

Please help us by donating a little or a lot if you can. No matter how small or how big, every donation will help make Jemma’s dream come to fruition and send Jemma and her little family on a trip of a lifetime.
