Sinead’s Cancer Care is a West Yorkshire based charity founded alongside Sinead to support charities that helped her, during her battle with cancer. After experiencing the care and support given by these charities, Sinead felt driven to support and fundraise, enabling other young people with cancer to receive the same help and support Sinead and her family did.
Our primary aim is to support local charities that provide medical research, treatment, care, support and who also improve the quality of life for young people who are facing cancer.
Join us and help, Fight Cancer Together.
Overgate Hospice is Calderdale’s only adult Hospice, providing specialist palliative and end of life care, completely free of charge, to adults across Calderdale; in addition to support for their friends and family. It currently costs £3.5 million per year to keep the Hospice open and it is largely due to the fundraising efforts of people like you that we are able to achieve this
The Christie Charity
The aim of The Christie Charity is to raise funds for all those extra special services that help patients to cope with the impact of cancer on their daily lives. Voluntary donations also contribute towards our cancer research programmes, capital building projects and the purchase of state of the art medical equipment. Thanks to charitable support, we are able to provide a range of enhanced patient support and clinical treatment in superb facilities over and above that which can be provided from NHS funding.
The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust
The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust is the only UK charity funding medical research specifically into cancer affecting teenagers and young adults, where it can frequently strike in dangerous and complex forms. The Trust also funds measures to improve the quality of life for young cancer patients, both during and in the aftermath of their illnesses.
The Willow Foundation
Willow is the only UK charity that provides uplifting and unforgettable Special Days for seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40. Each Special Day is individually created and can be much needed time out for couples, a short break for young families or a once-in-a-life-time experience. The young people we support tell us that looking forward to their Special Day gives much joy at a time of great sadness, anxiety and uncertainty. The experience itself allows them and their families to create precious and lasting memories. Founded in 1999, the charity provided 1,280 Special Days during 2016
From diagnosis, CLIC Sargent’s specialist care teams will step in, ready to help, support and guide. We provide a specialist package of support tailored to each young cancer patient and their family.
CLIC Sargent will fight tirelessly for children and young people with cancer, often when they feel they can’t. We do this individually, locally and nationally, so that they can focus on the important things, like getting well. And if the worst happens, we will work with bereaved families to get them support, to help them cope with their emotional pain.
