Every day between now and Christmas, 41 people will be diagnosed with blood cancer. And Christmas will be completely overshadowed by a dark cloud of worry and uncertainty.
How can they possibly think about doing Christmas shopping and putting up decorations, when their whole future is hanging in the balance?
Please give now to provide a family with a Blood Cancer Support Coordinator. You can make sure that the worries and challenges don’t become unbearable – and Christmas doesn’t have to be cancelled.
You will be giving the ultimate gift to a family like Louis’. Four-year-old Louis was diagnosed with blood cancer last year, leaving his mum Siobhan confused and terrified:
“Louis was in and out of hospital for months. I was anxious about whether we’d be able to spend Christmas as a family – and whether Louis would even make it into the new year.”
Thankfully, the family had a Blood Cancer Support Coordinator, Brianna. She eased their worries and helped them cope at this dark, difficult time.
“Brianna did everything she could to support us. She decoded all the information from the doctors, helping me understand what Louis’ treatment would involve.
“Thanks to her, I went into Christmas feeling calm and clear. I could focus on making the festivities as special as possible for Louis and my three other kids.”
Louis’ big brother Alfie saved his present for the new year. He donated his bone marrow, and it was the ultimate gift. The transplant saved Louis’ life.
This Christmas, you could give the ultimate gift to a family like Louis’. You could make sure that they don’t have to face blood cancer alone.
Please give now so that a Blood Cancer Support Coordinator, like Brianna can always be there – to answer the questions, to be a shoulder to cry on and help the light of Christmas shine through.
