We are incredibly lucky to have some wonderful support from some amazing people. Last week, the wonderful Arsenal player Sead Kolasinac met one of our bereaved families. He invited Tony and his 12 year old son Tom to watch Arsenal v Spurs at the Emirates in Sead’s box!
Tom is a bereaved sibling to little Orlagh, but also has autism. His dream is to be a goal keeper and is extremely dedicated! So much so that he managed to rupture his spleen in goal on the morning of the London Derby and still managed to watch the game and meet Sead!!
We are not a wish charity as such, but we do believe in doing what we can to support families through hardship and bereavement- and in particular siblings that are just as affected by a cancer diagnosis.
We are wishing Tom all the very best for his recovery and want to say a huge thank you to Sead and his team for making a little boys dreams come true.
