Donna Bednarek is the local fundraising engagement manager for charity CLIC Sargent who support families whose children have been diagnosed with cancer.
When cancer strikes young lives CLIC Sargent helps families limit the damage cancer causes beyond their health. Cancer doesn’t discriminate. Today, 12 more children and young people will hear the devastating news that they have cancer.
From diagnosis, CLIC Sargent’s specialist care teams will step in, ready to help, support and guide. They will provide a specialist package of support tailored to each young cancer patient and family. CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly for children and young people with cancer, often when they feel they can’t.
They 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.
Their vision is that everyone under 25 with cancer, and their families, will get the support and help they need during their cancer treatment and beyond, including bereaved families living with emotional pain. We want them to thrive, not just survive, and for everyone to join in that mission.
