The Latest Kids for Life Charity Awards

 

Our proudest moments as a charity come when we are able to direct funds to needy causes as part of our mission to assist children and young people in their fight against life threatening diseases.

When we received a request from Leeds Children’s Hospital, Kids for Life were delighted to help out. In our previous issue of the Kids for Life magazine, we highlighted the importance of play for children undergoing treatment, and the role it has in assisting their recovery.

 

Naomi House recently launched an appeal to raise much needed funding to refurbish their hospice and Kids for Life were more than happy to help out! We have sponsored a leaf on the Giving Tree that is housed in the hospice, providing a boost for the provision of care and assistance to life limited and life threatened children in their care.

Kids Cancer Charity
 

Kids Cancer Charity was established in 1989 as Christian Lewis Trust to help children with cancer and their families. Its objectives remain unchanged as we continue to strive to help all children affected by cancer but we have, over the last 25 years broadened the range of scope of the services we offer.

Solving Kids’ Cancer
 

Solving Kids’ Cancer supports families affected by high-risk childhood cancers in the areas of neuroblastoma, brain tumours and sarcomas. We fund the next generation of innovative research in these challenging areas. We also offer a range of family support services to help inform and support families faced with childhood cancer.

 

Cancer is the leading cause of death in children in the UK. 25% of children diagnosed with cancer won’t make it to their 30th birthday. Through groundbreaking research, Kidscan is striving to change that, giving every child with cancer the treatment they need to survive.

Founded  in 1976 by families and medical staff, Candlelighters continues to help support children with cancer and their families across Yorkshire. Candlelighters fund research, family holidays, grants, essential additional services within the hospital and vital support for families battling children's cancer.

NECCR
 

The North of England Children’s Cancer Research Fund is a North East children’s charity formed in 1979 by a small group of parents whose lives had been changed forever by childhood cancer. Some parents had lost children, while others were grateful that their children had overcome disease.

 

Enabling children to access Proton Therapy Treatment for cancer and giving support to their family. 

 

This charity is designed to help children access the latest evolution of radiotherapy treatment – Proton Therapy – which is extremely effective in treating mass tumour cancers, whilst at the same time, causing significantly less collateral damage to sensitive and/or not yet fully developed healthy tissue and organs than traditional Radio Therapy, because of the pinpoint accuracy, control and focus the Proton Therapy process allows.

This page is dedicated to our beautiful baby girl, Bethany. Bethany was 8 years old and lost her fight to Wilms tumour, a rare childhood cancer of the kidney on the 12/10/12 after a four year battle to beat the odds. Please take a moment to look at our story.

Help us to raise awareness of Wilms tumour and fund vital research into finding a cure. Childhood cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease for children, help us create smiles in the darkness, in memory of a beautiful girl with an everlasting smile.

 

We provide hospice care for children with life-limiting conditions and their whole family across the South West. The care we offer is wide ranging; respite and short breaks, emergency care, palliative care and end of life care. We operate three hospices; Little Bridge House in North Devon, Charlton Farm in North Somerset and Little Harbour in mid Cornwall. 

 

Having a child diagnosed with cancer or leukaemia comes as a devastating blow. Faced with a period of months and sometimes years of gruelling treatment and an unknown future, the related ups and downs are often referred to by families as like being on a rollercoaster.

Earlier this year, KFL received a grant request from Mr Rumsey to assist his son, Thomas. Thomas is  living with Lymphoblastic Leukemia after being diagnosed back in 2014. He is currently receiving treatment at Alder Hey Hospital. His parents are keen for Thomas to be able to focus on his future, and to embark on his passion for photography to allow him to follow his dream career.

Make A Wish

We exist for one reason - to grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions.

Whether it's starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a life-changing bedroom makeover; our wishes are varied, personal and, most importantly, magical.

We go above and beyond to grant very special wishes to very special children; their dreams made a reality at a time when they need it most.

The Honeypot Children’s Charity offers both respite breaks and outreach support to young carers and vulnerable children, many of whom would otherwise have nowhere to turn. We are proud to be the only charity in the UK offering consistent support throughout childhood; from the age of 5 until a child’s 12th birthday.

We support over 2,000 families in England with a seriously ill child, however there are thousands more families across the UK who could benefit from our support. We need your help to support these families.
