Children with Cancer UK’s new Heroes Against Cancer campaign is granting the wishes of young cancer patients as they receive a surprise from their personal ‘hero’, with a specially recorded video message or a meet-and-greet in person.
This campaign will provide young families with a special memory that offers their child a moment of respite from the challenges of a childhood cancer diagnosis.
Jo Elvin, CEO, said:
As well as funding ground-breaking scientific research into the treatment and causes of childhood cancer, we’re also committed to providing ongoing support for young cancer patients. Campaigns such as this are so important in helping to create a moment of fun, excitement and respite for patients and their families, and we’re determined to make even more wishes come true.
Children with Cancer UK thanks all our celebrity supporters who have been involved in the campaign and sent such special messages to their young fans.
If you would like to nominate your child to be involved with this campaign, please send your details and your child’s hero to Issy at firstname.lastname@example.org. All hero videos and reactions will be recorded for use in charity communications.
We cannot make any guarantees, but we’ll do our absolute best to make a special moment happen for your child.
