It’s Hospice Care Week and we are launching our brand new film – Living with Cancer – to raise awareness of how we support children and young people living with the disease.

Adam, Jessica and Antony are just three of the teenagers we support through our monthly Teenage Cancer Group. They talk candidly about the impact of receiving a cancer diagnosis and how the group provides support and the opportunity to have fun and make friends.

Katie Lewis, Specialist Children’s Outreach Nurse at Haven House, said: “We are so proud of Adam, Jessica and Antony for talking candidly about the impact of receiving a cancer diagnosis and the difference our Teenage Cancer Group has made to them.

“Children and young people with cancer can sometimes feel isolated, and during the treatment phase of their disease can be absent from school for long periods of time.

"Our support group is a great way for young people with cancer to have fun and meet other young people and make friends.

“We hope this film will raise awareness of the support needed for young people with cancer in our area.”

Watch our new film and share it with your friends.

As well as our film, we are also launching our first podcast with Eileen White, Director of Care, who talks about working for a children's hospice and seeing the difference our support and care can make to a family. She shares her experience and highlights how fulfilling working at Haven House can be.

Donate to Haven House and help us reach more life-limited children and their families. We want to reach 500 children by 2020 and with your help we can.
