A family Christmas is always chaotic. But what happens when a child gets cancer?
Without the support of CLIC Sargent I just don’t know how we would have coped.
Christmas in hospital
Quinn was just three years old when he was diagnosed with leukaemia. He and his family spent their next three Christmases in and out of hospital. As his treatment continued over 31 months, the impact of his cancer was felt by every member of his family.
One Christmas Day, his parents, Sara and Geoff, thought they would lose their little boy. CLIC Sargent gave vital support to help the whole family cope during this time.
CLIC Sargent supported Sara and Geoff through the emotional and practical impact of their young son’s cancer. We worked with Quinn’s five siblings, helping them as they struggled to cope with the reality of their brother’s illness.
We also helped the family spend Christmas together at our holiday home, Malcolm Sargent House, giving them a chance to be together after two Christmases spent on hospital wards, hoping their little boy would get better.
This Christmas, there are still so many families who need our support – and yours.
Please give what you can to our special Christmas appeal. Your donation will help more families like Quinn's cope with the chaos of having a child with cancer.
