Mary’s story: one day a time

Our helpline offers vital support for the families of seriously ill children. “My six-year old daughter Mary has a rare brain overgrowth condition, and needs specialist care,” says Mary’s Mum Donna. “When she started at specialist educational school I was so worried about her and how she would cope. I called the Helpline and spoke for an hour about my fears. It made a tremendous difference, having somebody to listen.” Your support will help keep our helpline open for parents like Donna.
