Abbey’s son Fraser is currently undergoing treatment for leukaemia. In September 2017, team Fraser's Fabulous Foot Soldiers will be taking on the epic Thames Path Challenge to raise money for CLIC Sargent. Here, Abbey explains why.
"CLIC Sargent chose to support my family when we were lost and broken and didn't know where to turn. Having a child diagnosed with cancer is terrifying beyond belief, and the last thing you want to do is leave their side, like ever!
"CLIC Sargent's Home from Home accommodation is amazing, it's free, it's nearby and the housekeeping staff are so very kind and supportive. Without them we would never have been able to stay so close when our son needed us most.
"CLIC Sargent also helped us with a grant and by providing us with a wonderful CLIC Sargent Social Worker and a Youth Support worker to help our son find his feet again now that his intensive treatment has finished.
"When I saw that we could support CLIC Sargent by walking the Thames Path Challenge I was delighted, it had our name written all over it, we're not athletes but we are determined.
"Lots of friends have decided to join us too so it's going to be a great day and we hope to raise lots of pennies so that more families can benefit from the wonderful work that CLIC Sargent does.”
