Working hard to make a positive difference to the lives of children with cancer, and their families.
Every year in the UK around 1,700 children under 16 are diagnosed with cancer. This is a traumatic time for their whole family. In 42% of cases a parent has to give up work to care for their child which means that their income is massively reduced, and yet the costs of having a child with cancer are huge. Transport to and from hospital, parking, vital alterations to the family home, extra childcare for siblings – these things all cost money. Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund provides Care Grants to help affected families with whatever they may need in times of financial crisis.
Respite breaks for families
In addition Lennox provide Respite Breaks for families at their two UK holiday homes. Quality family time suffers badly when a child is diagnosed with cancer, and these breaks give the family a chance to spend time together, have fun and forget about hospital for just a few days. Many of them say that it was ‘just what the doctor ordered’.
24/7 Emotional support service
Lennox’s other main area of support is its own 24/7 emotional support service. When a child is diagnosed with cancer there is pressure on their parents to stay strong for them, which is much easier said than done. Lennox’s fully qualified counsellors are available any time, day or night, for any family member who needs somebody to talk to or a shoulder to cry on.
Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund takes pride in supporting the whole family.
