In January 2017, Morrisons colleagues voted for CLIC Sargent to be their charity partner for the next three years. For Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, they are helping us raise awareness of the emotional impact of a cancer diagnosis on the whole family.
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
When cancer strikes young lives, CLIC Sargent helps the whole family cope. Morrisons, who are partnered with us until 2020, are selling Childhood Cancer Awareness Month gold ribbon badges in their stores and sites across the UK, from 1 September. Pop in to any Morrisons store, or visit our online shop to get your gold ribbon badge.
Fleur and Millie's story
Morrisons colleague Fleur knows first hand how a cancer diagnosis devastates families emotionally. When her daughter, Millie, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2015, she struggled with the emotions that came with it. But CLIC Sargent were there to help the whole family cope. Read their story.
Nobody thinks it will happen to their child. Until it does. CLIC Sargent provides the vital help to stop cancer destroying young lives. Right now, for every two families we help there is one not currently receiving the support they desperately need. We want to be there for all of them. A partnership with Morrisons will transform this:
People: we'll create a brand new team of CLIC Sargent nurses to educate other health, social care and education professionals close to families’ homes, so that they have the skills and experience to provide the best possible care for young lives against cancer.
Places: we’ll create new Home Hubs close to Specialist Treatment Hospitals, providing a welcoming environment for families to take a much needed break from the intensity of hospital.
Practical things: we'll be able to expand our financial grants to families, so that they can focus on important things like getting well. We’ll also be able to develop a groundbreaking new digital hub, giving thousands of families who we currently can’t support access to advice from healthcare professionals from the comfort of their own home.
