Hi, Ya and thank you loads for coming back!
The Happy Badger from ao.com is on a mission to spread happiness across the blogosphere by getting bloggers to talk about their favourite charities so of course I had to take the chance to tell you just a little more about the Emily Ash Trust for £50 donation
to say that this Charity and a few others to mention are close to my heart, But my chosen one for this is Emily Ash Trust
why is it so special ?
because it helps families like mine in their time of need when children and young people are hit with tragic news of Cancer and other horrid illnesses that are probably the main thing family’s need, these people have been there suffered how we are suffering and are still there at the end to help the adults hold it together till the very end.
there are many things Emily Ash Trust does
Whilst excellent medical assistance is provided through the care network, it is clear that this terrible disease has far wider effects on the sufferer and the family supporting those who are sick. Inspired by Emily who had been suffering from leukaemia for some years, it was decided to help raise funds to improve the quality of life for these children and their families.
We are a small charity with a big heart with our primary aim being to improve the lives of children and young people suffering from cancer. We are able to do this thanks to the fundraising and donations made by our fantastic supporters who, like us, want to help families facing cancer. All staff work on a voluntary basis with all money raised going to support these families.
We provide help, events for the whole family and resources with the aim of improving the quality of life of children and young adults suffering from cancer and their families. The Trust focuses its help in various ways, including:
- Build-A-Bear and Zizzi
- Two free holiday homes in Battle, near Hastings
- Teenage Pamper Days at Topshop – London
- Pamper Days for parents at The Royal Marsden
- Sibling and Family Days
- Christmas party – Winter Wonderland
- Resources for the Marsden School Room and Play Rooms to make stays in the hospital more bearable.
- Build A Bear On the Ward – we bring bears, outfits and accessories to patients on the ward at the Royal Marsden Hospital
- Help and special treats for families of children or teens being treated for cancer
My family have had their fair share of misery when it comes to Cancer, yes my mum and my sister both suffered and still suffering from this relentless disease,
my mum has had cancer several times and fort, overcome and another type 4 times in different areas, to say from the age of 18 (myself) having to go through a parent being gravely ill and trying to keep positive, to then see your baby sister who was 13 when struck with a brain tumour, operations have been done on them both and at the same time my heart torn apart, then aged 21, and a new mum to Ladybug.
having both of my family members unwell and seeing what the Emily Ash Trust has done for my family is amazing,
Sister has had a makeover at TopShop, the family have been to Hastings holiday home and much more.
the good news is My mum and sister are now well my sister now 19 and mum 21 (lol) are still in touch with this charity
I see the event 10,000 ft free fall parachute jump is something that makes my knees tremble but it is for a good cause .. if anyone is willing to help me raise funds please leave a comment below
this is an amazing chance to do something once in a lifetime to help others!
