Friends of Alfe’s Cause
Thomas’s Fund is a charity founded in 2007 that provides music therapy in Northamptonshire for children and young people with life limiting illnesses or disability which, for medical reason, means they are too ill to attend school for extended periods.
Chelsea’s Angels has been set up to raise funds for families whose children have been diagnosed with Neuroblastoma and other cancers classed as rare. Their mission is to ease the financial and emotional pressures of living with a child suffering from theses rare cancers.
Megans Flutterby Fund is dedicated to the memory of Megan who died aged 13 years of a life limiting illness. It’s aims are to enrich the lives of local children like her by helping towards much specialised equipment that is not funded by the health service.
As a trust, Team Henry fundraise for treats and wishes to provide special memories for families dealing with childhood cancers. It will work alongside hospitals to improve care programmes and assist in producing leaflets and books to help families during their oncology journey.
BE CHILD CANCER AWARE was the first UK charity to produce and deliver an awareness card. It displays the most common signs and symptoms found in children, when some form of childhood cancer is present. They were also the first UK charity to develop a FREE I-Phone application, also displaying these same signs and symptoms. It is due to taking this initiative step that some children have received an earlier diagnosis, increasing their chance of a cure because an early diagnosis saves lives.
