‘Taegan, aged 12, was diagnosed with an ovarian germ cell tumour on 6th December 2018. She spent time on Ward 31 and 33 and as a family, we will be eternally grateful to the fantastic staff at LGI and to the brilliant people at Candlelighters for all their help and support; even now, after treatment, they always show how much they care.
Thank you so much!’
– Mum, Kelly. 
Please be the spark that keeps our candle burning and give a Regular Gift today, so we can bring light to families like Taegan’s in these darkest of times.
