How your money helps
Who you're helping
For just £1 a ticket you can help bring hope to children like Rian. His mum, Kelly, shares their story below:
My youngest son Rian was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) shortly after his 1st birthday. Rian’s liver and spleen were enlarged, and doctors suspected he had blood cancer. I went numb when I heard those words.
We started treatment immediately and spent six weeks in hospital. He had numerous lumbar punctures, steroid treatment and chemotherapy which made him exhausted and unwell. It was the most awful experience; watching my baby boy in pain and knowing that there was nothing I could do. Rian however, would watch me, smile and take comfort in my presence.
Children with Cancer UK was a comfort for me during this time. I was able to read stories and watch videos of other children ringing the end of treatment bell and I just thought to myself ‘one day’. Finally, after over three years of intensive treatment, that day did arrive and my little boy was able to ring the end of treatment bell in September 2019!
By entering Children with Cancer UK’s Christmas Grand Draw, you could help support more children like my Rian, which would mean the world to me.
Kelly, Rian’s mum.
