Helping Rainbow !

By Dave Pearson | Global Giving Co Ordinator


Iris has a brain tumour and is receiving chemo and radiotherapy, she has a sister Athina.

 Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker, Alison, is on hand to provide support for the youngest daughter Athina, as the family know it is very important to keep things as normal as they can for her. Alison takes the family to hospital appointments and drives them around.

 The family have seen the benefits of Rainbow Trust care, and have started actively fundraising to help other families benefit from the service. Debra, Iris’s mum, says: “Most families don’t start fundraising until their child’s treatment, for one reason or another, has ended. However we found that most people want to do something as soon as they learned about Iris’s diagnosis – we therefore decided that we would do the most good by starting to fundraise straightaway.”

“Fundraising gives our family and friends something positive to do. The donation you make will help those families in the near future who suddenly find that the statement ‘thank goodness it’s not my child’ no longer applies to them.” Debra, Iris’s mum
