Clic Sargent is a charity which has offered us the most help in ways you probably would never have even thought about from the start of finding out about our son having cancer all the way through to the current time of our journey. They not only support children through cancer, but also the parents who didn’t know they needed their help, at least that is what we found.
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.
We were assigned our own Clic Sargent Social Worker, who brought the best advice, gave us a lot of insight into what to expect and organise whilst in hospital and out of hospital, but also helped us financially and even did the little things like notified the workplace, Health Visitor, filled in the many forms you find yourself wanting to complete but can’t be bothered to.
We want to pay back that financial help and more. Not only that but if we help fundraise for Clic Sargent, we know that other families will receive the exact same treatment we did. Help us help other families through the fight against children’s cancer where and when it matters, Clic Sargent really know how to do this.
