Christmas in hospital
Christmas is usually a wonderful time of year filled with family, friends, and festivities. Sadly, thousands of children spend their Christmas in hospital, feeling sick from their cancer treatments.
Children like Bella-Rose, who has now completed her treatment, but spent three Christmases in hospital battling cancer. Her mum, Abbie, remembers the joy on Bella-Rose’s face when some Christmas presents were delivered to their ward. She remembers how Bella-Rose’s new dolls brightened her Christmas at such a difficult time.
Dylan was admitted to hospital just before Christmas last year but, thank goodness, was sent home in time to spend Christmas with his family. And better still, we’re thrilled that Dylan finally got to ring the End of Treatment Bell this September.
