Summary

The diagnosis of childhood cancer in a loved one can be incredibly upsetting and often the treatment can be lengthy and expensive, removing the children from their normal everyday life. Together with our partners in the UK we are working to raise funds to give these children and their families to experience a getaway from the difficult situation they are facing and help them to have quality time together, away from the doctors and treatment, whilst still being close enough to a hospital if need.

Challenge

Cancer and the treatment can be very draining, long and expensive especially as it is not something people are prepared for and often this leaves families feeling very stressed and not able to enjoy their time with their loved ones. Another challenge for the children going through treatment is that one of the main side effects is a low immune system and this often makes the idea of a holiday seem impossible to the children and their parents as they need regular assistance and care.

Solution

Our partners in the UK have 3-holiday homes that are available for families with children undergoing cancer treatment to go to for a getaway and opportunity to spend quality time together in the most stress-free environment possible. There are opportunities to visit the animals, walk in nature or just relax at the home. These holidays are at absolutely no cost to the families and the funds raised go towards the upkeep, refurbishment, holidays costs and spending money for the families.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of these holidays and the lodges will be providing families with an opportunity to relax and bond as a family, there have been incredible reviews from families who have stayed there and the number of people benefiting will continue to increase as we hope to acquire fourth home to accommodate more individuals. At the moment we are helping 60 families a year, per cabin, which already totals 1800 families over the course of our leases.
