Rae Rae Trust was set up to help support child cancer patients and their families inspired by Rachael Louise Parker in 2015.
Rachael and the trust hope that by raising awareness of children's cancers (through telling their stories) people will be aware of the importance of early diagnosis and as a result treated earlier.
Rachael's own case was missed a number of times before receiving the correct diagnosis and treatment. whilst she is currently in remission Rachael's battle may have been easier (having had life changing surgery) had she been diagnosed before the sarcoma went metastatic.
The aim of the charity is to put smiles on little faces of children fighting cancer and their siblings/family through treats and wishes. Rachael herself felt that her siblings felt left out as all the attention shifted (rightly so) to her and her life threatening illness, But she knew they were also very upset and worried about her. This can be in the form of days out, weekends away or anything that can be a shared experience making special memories and uniting the family in their toughest time.
Fundraising is a great way to help the raeraetrust and throughout the year there are many events organised to help children and their families affected by cancer.
Just by spreading the word and raising awareness of the charity you can help the Rae Rae Trust. The more people that are aware of the trust and the work we do the more chance we have of helping others.
We would love to hear from you if you have any ideas or suggestions on fund raising events or anyone that might be able to benefit from the Rae Rae Trust.
