A rainbow to brighten a winter's day
Darcie loves rainbows and has painted one to share with you
This winter hundreds of Kiwi children like four-year-old Darcie will not only be fighting cancer, they'll also be fighting to stay healthy. With immune systems already weakened by the intensive treatment saving their lives, it is essential that these children stay warm and dry.
Darcie's mum Cheryl knows all about trying to keep an already sick child, who has no immunity to other lurking bugs, from becoming even sicker throughout the winter months.
Last year, at just three, Darcie was diagnosed with cancer. Her Dunedin family were shocked, stressed and apart for long periods of time while Darcie received the critical treatment she needed to survive.
The support each family needs during their cancer journey is different and this is no more evident than during winter. Families who do not live in warm, dry homes may need firewood and warm clothing. Others may need help covering increased electricity costs.
Helping families stay warm and dry during the winter months offers a sick child the best possible environment to get well in.
By making a donation today you can help hundreds of Kiwi children like Darcie receive the extra help they need this winter and brighten a grey winter's day.
