Cancer doesn't know it's Christmas

Dear Friend of Barretstown,

This year your gift has helped to bring a child like Patrick, who is fighting cancer this Christmas to experience one of Barretsotown’s magical and life-changing camps.

If you’re lucky, you have a child like Patrick in your life. A live wire. Someone whose smile lights up the house, and whose laughter fills every room with warmth.

But four years ago, just before Christmas, Patrick got really sick and his house went quiet. And it stayed that way for a very long time.

Because that Christmas his family was given the news that no family ever wants to hear. News that tears families apart. Once a healthy and vibrant little boy, Patrick was diagnosed with leukaemia.

What followed was three and a half incredibly tough and painful years. Everything got put on hold. His families’ lives. Patrick’s childhood. The big pause button was pressed.

But Barretstown helped them all find a reason to smile, and even laugh again. Barretstown helped to press play on Patrick’s childhood again. And so did you by supporting Barretstown this year!

You have done something wonderful for children like Patrick this Christmas. You have helped bring them to Barretstown, a place where they can forget about their illness for a while, have fun, and do all the things that make childhood so special and magical.

You have helped to build them back up again. Thank you!

From the whole team at Barretstown,
