If you’ve got a special occasion coming up – a wedding, birthday or anniversary – why not ask friends and family to make a donation to Children with Cancer UK in place of a gift to you?
Jemma was 10 months old when diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) and spent two years having chemotherapy.
It has impacted our life in every way. A sick baby makes you feel an extreme protection, an incredible bond, as you are so aware that you could lose your child at any moment.
The dosage of chemotherapy she had as such a tiny baby means no one can know for sure what the long term damage could be.
What I do know is that Jemma is still with us because of the developments in medical research and for that my family is sincerely grateful.
