Every donation will help us to be there for families like Allison, Joseph and Hannah. At the age of 4, Hannah has relapsed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia- a devastating situation to be in at any time, worsened by the arrival of COVID-19. Candlelighters have endeavoured to continue providing vital support to the Brown family, through our revised virtual support sessions. On receiving a virtual talking therapy session, Mum Allison said “I found this immensely helpful, even if it wasn’t face to face, it was nice to have someone who knew the basis of what we are going through; somebody that you could trust and who understood what we were talking about.”
