When we started our fund we were in hospital and in the middle of (or what now seems like the start of) the most horrible time of our lives.  All of our focus was on Rory. Anything positive that we could do -  we really wanted to. I guess it’s worth saying, which might be obvious, but fundraising is possibly one of the few positive and tangible things a parent or relative can do while their child is ill. I know this might not be the same for everyone, but we found it useful to be able to do something at that desperate time." Matt, dad of Rory

After a cancer diagnosis of a child or young person, you may find that your lovely network of family and friends want to show their support, share a memory or do something to help. They just don’t know how. Our personalised funds are a way to do just that. With the support of your local Fundraising Engagement Manager, you can build your personalised fund to really reflect the shining star in your life, all in their name. The donations received are kept together as a collective total on your online fundraising page, along with messages from everyone who has come together to celebrate and support them. All the money raised will go to Young Lives vs Cancer to help families find the strength to face everything cancer throws at them.
