Chloe feared she would miss out on Christmas
Seven-year-old Chloe has acute myeloid leukaemia. And when her mum told her that she was very sick and she would need to spend time in hospital, the first thing Chloe said was:
“Mummy, will Santa find me this Christmas?”
This year, many families like Chloe’s will spend Christmas in Leukaemia Foundation accommodation, where they can be closer to major hospitals for their life-saving treatment.
For families living with blood cancer, there’s just no time to think about Christmas. But there is time for you to make sure they have best Christmas possible.
With your special gift, you could deck out their home-away-from-home with:
- Decorations, glittering lights and a beautiful little tree
- Small presents for children to open on Christmas morning
- A Christmas lunch and a festive hamper full of goodies
So thanks to you, Santa will be able to find children like Chloe. And families can still have the best Christmas possible, despite everything they’re going through.
