I've joined the Redkite Dry July team.... but it's more than just giving up alcohol for 31 days, It's also about raising funds for people affected by cancer.
I'm going dry this July because when I was 17, I lost my mum to cancer. Knowing the effects of a cancer diagnosis on a family, I want to do everything I can to help ensure no one faces cancer alone.
This week, 17 teenagers and young adults will be told they have cancer. Their lives will be changed forever and they'll face this scary journey in an adult hospital among patients twice their age. Their future will also suddenly have a big question mark – some might miss a whole year of school or uni, while others may have to deal with treatment impacts like the loss of a limb or ongoing fatigue.
No young person should face these challenges without access to ongoing, professional support. Redkite not only looks after the young person with a diagnosis, we are also here to help their family and support network.
Thank you so much in advance for your support – please know your donation goes toward making a difference in the lives of young people and their families facing cancer.
