Honour's story

Honour was diagnosed with a rare ovarian childhood cancer when she was 12 years old. She’s now 14, has been clear of cancer for over a year and lives with her mum, Rachel, and two younger brothers, Elliott and Abraham, in Millisle, Northern Ireland.

Rachel shares her daughter’s story.

"The news that Honour had cancer floored our family. Elliott was so scared he had nightmares and Abraham didn’t want to go to school.

It was all I thought about, morning, noon and night. But Honour took it in her stride – she has dealt with it all so well.

"Our first contact with CLIC Sargent was through our social worker Bridget. She explained everything and pointed us in the direction of the help that we could get. She helped us get a financial grant from the charity. It paid for things like getting taxis to the hospital in Belfast, which cost up to £60 a day.

"There is still a dark cloud. But we try to stay positive. It’s good to know that CLIC Sargent is there and that we have options for help.”
