Make-A-Wish Foundation UK

I was emailed this week by Hayley Epps from the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK .

It seemed fate that she emailed me at this time as I had just recently applied to this Charity on behalf of my son Jack.

Hayley was reaching out to Bloggers for the first time and made a special request on behalf of a family whose child, May, had a wish granted. This is their story:

Back in the summer of 2010 Make-A-Wish UK granted the wish of five year old May who was fighting a rare cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma – she wished to be a princess for the day. Sadly May passed away just a couple of months after her wish, two years ago today, on 31st August 2010.

May’s family have been involved with Make-A-Wish ever since, raising as much money as they can to ensure that other families going through the same awful experience can have their wish. May’s Dad, Neil, has made this short video and would like as many people as possible to watch it and support Make-A-Wish:

It's only a minute or so long, so please watch the video if you have a moment to spare. And if you could share it with as many people as you can it would mean so much to Neil and his family. If you are able to make a donation too, to help grant a wish to another child like May, you can ‘Remember May’ at

Please pass this video on via your Blog, Facebook, Google+ or Twitter using the hashtag #RememberMay and the shortened link:

You can make a difference to a child like Jack who is battling a life shortening condition.

Thank you

  3. How sad. I support an organization called Kyrie Foundation, named after 18 month old Kyrie Thome who passed away six weeks after her brain cancer diagnosis. Her family, in their grief, started this foundation to raise money for pediatric brain cancer research.

  4. Hey Lyndylou. Thanks for sharing this and I have shared onwards x
