Welcome to our NEW Trustee!

Add some more info about this item...

We are over the moon to welcome to the team Lilly Snatchdragon as Cabaret vs Cancer's newest Trustee.

Rose Thorne, founder of Cabaret vs Cancer said "Lilly is a force to be reckoned with and her sheer determination and drive will bring great things to the work of the charity.  She has been a supporter of the charity for a long while, but under the title of Ambassador we know she will make sure the world knows how to donate!"

On her appointment, Lilly said "After watching my father die of stomach cancer in Laos on January 4th 2016 where there is hardly any form of support for cancer patients or the family, my sister and I were his nurses.  We washed him,  helped him go to the toilet and slept at the end of his bed to help him when he was vomiting.  For me, not having any idea what was happening to my father and having to google 'stages of death' was incredibly traumatic.  

 

Being a Trustee for Cabaret vs Cancer means a lot to me.  Being able to do something/anything to raise money so others won't have to experience what I went through is important."

Death.

 

It's a very big word. Even to an adult it's a big, scary word.

 

Many of us have sat with a parent, friend or relative as they've edged towards the end of life. It's big and it's scary. As an adult we grasp that 'death' is the end word. We don't understand it, but on a certain level we grasp it.

 

Imagine you're six. Mum made your fancy dress outfit for Halloween, mum knew how to get in touch with the tooth fairy, mum knew what your favourite sandwich filling was in the packed lunch she made for you every day you've ever been at school. 

 

But mum is dying, in a strange place which smells funny. Grownups tell you that you have to sit there and not get in the way. Sit there and be quite. Do your homework but be quiet. It's scary and it's the biggest thing to ever happen to you. 

 

'I'll be right here' is Cabaret Vs Cancer's month long campaign to help support children who are losing a parent to cancer. Working with St Joseph's Hospice and The Fruitfly Collective, we are working on a support box for children to be given when their parent is admitted to the palliative care unit. The box won't replace mum or dad but it will help them through a really scary time in their lives. 

 

We need your help to raise £4,000 to get the first 100 boxes done, to make sure they are right, to make sure the literature for adults helps them talk about death, to help the children when the inevitable happens, and to help them cope without one of the most important people in their lives.
