Why We Need Your Support
Every week, on the island of Ireland, another 10 children, teenagers or young adults will be diagnosed with cancer. We understand that, beyond the essential medical care, there is a family life that needs to be rebuilt.
We currently offer therapeutic short breaks at Daisy Lodge, in Newcastle, Co. Down, for families throughout Ireland living with a childhood cancer diagnosis. Therapeutic short breaks allow families to spend quality time together in a peaceful and nurturing environment far removed from hospital and treatment regimes and to benefit from the support provided by our team of Cancer Support Specialists.
However, we can only provide one in seven families with a short break which is why we have embarked on exciting plans for a new Daisy Lodge therapeutic centre in Co. Mayo to ensure all families across Ireland get the vital emotional support they need.
Every step you take will help make these amazing plans a reality. It’s time to go the extra mile ladies, register today and together let’s make this happen!
