We support - CLIC Sargent CLIC Sargent is a charity which is very close to my heart. Seven years ago we lost an incredible little boy Joshua to cancer. Yesterday would have been Josh's 17th Birthday and went out for dinner with the family to mark the occasion. Karina, Josh's mum and my sister in law, is one of the bravest people I know. She dedicated all her time in his last year from the time that he was diagnosed to the time he passed away at the age of 10 years old creating magical moments for him and the family. One of them being a trip to the Caribbean which Jon and I surprised them and turned up on the beach! A charity that helped her through it from beginning to end was CLIC Sargent. They offered unlimited support, and were a huge comfort especially to Josh's parents Karina and Rich. They will never be forgotten in my mind and no money in the world can buy miracles or cures but in Josh's situation they were invaluable. I know many people will be doing sponsored runs/walks/events this year and if anyone is debating which charity to support I hope that this one comes to mind. Here is a synopsis of what they are about... CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. We provide clinical, practical and emotional support to help children and young people cope with cancer and get the most out of life. Who we are Today, 10 children and young people in the UK will hear the shocking news that they have cancer. Treatment normally starts immediately, is often given many miles from home and can last for up to three years. Being diagnosed with cancer is a frightening experience and the emotional, practical and financial implications of treatment are intensely challenging for the whole family. CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families. We provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life. We are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement. Our history CLIC Sargent was formed in 2005 after a successful merger between CLIC and Sargent Cancer Care for Children. Sargent Cancer Care for Children - founded in 1968 by Sylvia Darley OBE as a lasting memory to the late Sir Malcolm Sargent. CLIC - Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood - founded in 1976 in the south west by Bob Woodward following the diagnosis of his young son Robert with cancer two years before. Sadly, Robert died in 1977 aged 11 years, and Bob went on to dedicate his life to charity work.
