One of the many fantastic people we’ve met since all this started has been our CLIC Sargent social worker. CLIC Sargent are a charity set up to help children with cancer and their families After diagnosis all families are assigned a social worker to help them, should they need with any financial and emotional support.
I’d never heard of them until a few weeks ago, there’s no reason why I would have. I hope anyone reading this never has to know about them. But, what you should know is, the work they do and the support they offer has been a massive help to us.
It’s easy to underestimate the drain on your recourses that having an unwell child and stays in hospital can have on a family, and knowing that there’s help out there and someone to offer to ease some of the strain is priceless.
We decided to try and return some support back to them, and as such Kevin is going to shave his head. It’s a small sacrifice, and if you’ve ever witnessed Kev’s hair in its afro heyday – you may even say this is long overdue.
His justgiving page can be found on the link below, and if you could contribute a little something that would be much appreciated.
