What We Do

We support young palliative cancer patients under the age of 25.

We do this in the following ways…

Memory Making

  • Providing Cash Gifts for young palliative cancer patients to use on pain-free days to give a sense of control and independence.
  • Organising very personal last-minute experiences to create moments to treasure.
  • Arranging short breaks for family and friends to provide a sense of freedom and togetherness.
  • Ticking items off Bucket Lists, helping young patients to acheive their goals and make the most of the time they have.

 

Keepsakes

  • Working with young palliative cancer patients to create a This is Me / This is Us box, helping them to focus on their lives and loved ones.
  • Providing glass hearts inscribed with hand written messages for the words that become too hard to say.

 

Creative Therapy

  • Delivering exciting activity boxes to children’s cancer wards, offering a creative focus and essential distraction for all young patients during long periods of treatment.

 

If you know a child or young person with a palliative diagnosis who you think would benefit from our support, please email info@dragonflycancertrust.org or call us for a chat on 0191 261 0971.
