Ahoghill mum Lisa Taylor is backing Cancer Fund for Children’s Daisy Day collections.

Daisy Day collections will take place at 37 Tesco stores across the country on October 31.

Lisa is just one mum that Cancer Fund for Children supported after her little girl Molly was diagnosed with a medulloblastoma brain tumour in 2014 at the age of 8.

Lisa said: “When she was first diagnosed she just looked like a normal girl, she didn’t look unwell.

“Emotionally we were all devastated.”

Lisa said when Cancer Fund for Children Specialist Gemma O’Toole came in to provide Ward Support in the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children she made a big difference to Molly who was going through such a tough time.

“This is why I would urge people to donate to these bucket collections or to give up some of their time to help collect.”

The charity is appealing to the public to make that routine shopping trip really count by donating whatever they can to the bucket collections and support local families affected by cancer.

Cancer Fund for Children is also hoping to recruit volunteers to collect at each of the locations on Daisy Day.

Every week in NI, another three children, teenagers or young adults (0-24) are diagnosed with cancer.

Cancer Fund for Children understands the devastating impact a cancer diagnosis and treatment has on the whole family.

Cancer Fund for Children relies on donations in order to continue carrying out its vital work which includes practical, emotional and financial support in the home, community and hospital ward as well as free short therapeutic breaks.
