Dear EOE readers
CLIC Sargent is delighted that EOE has chosen to support the charity during 2013, and will continue during 2014.
I am writing to ask if readers would kindly give consideration to choosing CLIC Sargent to benefit from their company’s fundraising.
Every day, 10 children and young people in the UK hear the shocking news they have cancer. Treatment normally starts immediately, is often given many miles from home and can last for up to three years. Being diagnosed with cancer is a frightening experience and the emotional, practical and financial implications of treatment are intensely challenging for the whole family.
CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. We provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. We are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
It costs CLIC Sargent around £3750 to support each family through treatment and we rely solely on voluntary donations to be able to do this.
Currently we are only able to support 2 out of every 3 families which is why we are asking for your help.
I very much hope that you will offer your support and hope we can work together to make a difference to the life of a child with cancer and their family.
