Natasha Penney, from Burgess Hill, is inviting the West Sussex community to attend a fabulous Family Fun Day for her superhero son Sebastian, who is currently being supported by CLIC Sargent.
The day will feature a host of wonderful entertainment from Dizzy Tilly, Jo Puppets, Tnt parties, Princess Parties, Debbie Hulbert, Enchanted Experiences and Animazing Animals.
Guests will also have the chance to win some fantastic raffle prizes, from a Eurocamp Holiday, to tickets to local attractions such as the Brighton Racecourse. Donations will be taken on the door with all funds raised divided between CLIC Sargent and the Royal Marsden Hospital.
Natasha said: “Sebastian was diagnosed with bladder and prostate cancer at the age of 18 months. We instantly broke down and would have crumbled if it wasn't for the support CLIC Sargent has given us.
"The charity has been amazing. They have offered us someone to talk to throughout, and provided funding for car park and travel, houses to stay in so we can be together whilst Sebastian has treatment and even a break away in September.
"Without CLIC Sargent our lives would have been a lot harder these last few months. It is so tough to deal with everyday life and look after Sebastian to meet his daily needs.
"CLIC Sargent took away some of that stress by arranging visits, filling in forms, finding grants and organising psychologists. All things we would not know where to start with. Without this I don't know how I would have coped.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Helen Farquharson said: “We are absolutely overwhelmed that Natasha is making this wonderful contribution during such a difficult time.
"Natasha has set up a Support Me Fund for Sebastian while he goes through his treatment and the Burgess Hill community has really got behind the Family Fun Day and is giving huge support to Sebastian, Natasha and family.
"We hope there will be a great turn out on the day – every penny raised will help provide vital support for children like Sebastian.”
