surprises and when one of our cancer children contacted us from her bed
saying she knew of something that would help her Mum & Dad as
well as her, we put wheels in motion and with the help of a suggested
friend we granted the wish whilst they were out. This was the e-mail we
What a wonderful surprise when we arrived back from the hospital to
find two new sofas! They are lovely and so comfortable. We
would like to thank you and all the people who have raised funds for
Children With Cancer Fund for making us much more comfy. Gemma can now
relax on them in the lounge when she is feeling bad.
Thanks to you all once again.

Below is an e-mail we received from Gemma's mum, Sue, after paying for
venue hire & food for her 18th birthday party.
Hello all at Children with Cancer Fund,
We would just like to give a tremendous thank you to you all for the
contribution which you gave towards our daughter’s 18th Birthday party
last month. She had a fabulous time and so did all the family and
friends who attended. She spent the entire evening on the dance floor
and said it was the best night of her life. Emotions were running high
after all she had been through that year but it was fantastic to see
her having such a good time.
We are eternally grateful to all the people who have helped raise money
for the charity and made our lives so much better through all the
kindness we have received.
We went back up the Royal Marsden last week for three monthly blood
tests and everything was OK, which is fantastic, she is slowly getting
back to being able to do all the things she wants to do although she is
still suffering with a lot of tiredness.
