Story

Hi everyone our daddy, Patsy Donnelly is running his 21st Marathon. He has chosen the Berlin marathon which will take place on 26th September. He will be joined by our sister Paula, her husband Neil and daddy’s friend Nigel. He has vowed this will be his last marathon as he is now in his 70s and has decided to try and raise money for the Cancer fund for Children.

The sad reality is that every week in Northern Ireland another three children and young people aged 0-24 years old will be diagnosed with cancer.
As Northern Ireland’s leading children’s cancer charity, Cancer Fund for Children understands the devastating impact a cancer diagnosis and its treatment has on the whole family, and that beyond the essential medical care, there is a family life that needs to be rebuilt. 
From the point of diagnosis our team of Cancer Support Specialists are here to help, guide and support families at home, in their community, and at our therapeutic short break and residential centre in Newcastle, Co. Down. Our support is focused not just on the young person, but on the whole family. Our aim is to empower, connect and strengthen them, so they feel equipped to deal with whatever the future may hold.
Cancer Fund for Children is also here to help bereaved families cope with the emotional pain of losing a child to cancer. We also support children and young people whose parent has been diagnosed with cancer through our Young Shoulders Programme.
