The last year has been challenging for everyone and life has changed beyond recognition. Like many organisations we have had to adapt how we deliver our services to meet the needs of children and young people impacted by cancer who are particularly vulnerable during the pandemic.
The Daisy News is just one of the ways we keep our supporters and families up to date with our latest news and events and how your donations are continuing to make a difference to families living with cancer.
In this edition, you will meet Anne Gordon, one of our Cancer Support Specialists, whose role is to provide therapeutic support to families during their short break in Daisy Lodge, Newcastle.
Mum, Orla Walters, also shares her family’s experience of travelling to the United States during the pandemic with her daughter Tessa for a clinical trial. Orla described the family’s short break in Daisy Lodge, Newcastle as a ‘breath of fresh air’ for her family and a break from the relentless journey of cancer.
If you would like to find out more about our capital appeal to build a second Daisy Lodge in Co. Mayo and would like to get involved please contact our Ireland Relationship Manager, Belinda Kearns e: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also thank YOU our incredible supporters for being by our side throughout the pandemic. You truly have gone the extra mile to support children, young people, and families struggling to cope with the emotional impact of cancer. Your continued generosity and kindness will help us ensure that no child or young person has to face cancer alone.
