Local charity releases teenage cancer awareness film for Hospice Care Week

0

Haven House Children’s Hospice has launched a brand new film to raise awareness of the support available to children and young people with cancer as part of Hospice Care Week.

The film shows Antony Mooney, Jessica Wilson and Adam Marshall from Haven House’s Teenage Cancer Group talking candidly about the impact of receiving a cancer diagnosis and how the group provides support and the opportunity to have fun and make friends.

The group was formed in October 2016, after Jessica, who is in remission from leukaemia, suggested to Haven House staff that it would be nice to meet other young people with a cancer diagnosis in a less formal setting than hospital.

During the two and a half hour monthly sessions, the group can play games such as darts, table football and cards, relax in the grounds, create some artwork and enjoy pizza and BBQs.

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