September has been a very special month for Camille’s Appeal, as we celebrated the first anniversary of the launch of Brainbow- the UK’s first rehabilitation service for children with brain tumours. To mark this milestone we enjoyed a party with the Brainbow team, our charity partners Anna’s Hope and Tom’s Trust and staff from Addenbrooke’s Hospital who have been associated with Brainbow during its first year.
Fun events this spring
We would like to invite all of our supporters to take part in CaMAY. Throughout the whole of May people in all areas of the country will be holding coffee morning style events to raise awareness and funds for Camille's Appeal. Would you like to hold a CaMAY event?
It’s been some time since I last blogged about Camille and her progress post treatment; it seemed that back in May, updates were becoming more and more irregular and it was a good time to take a break. However, eight months is a long time and lots of significant events can take place, especially when trying to overcome the effects of a brain tumour.
Camille’s Appeal is the children’s brain tumour charity specifically focused on the support and welfare of children under the age of five.
Under current treatments, children are likely to undergo three treatments in an attempt to cure them of this horrific illness, all of which have a devastating effect on the bodies of these small children. Chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy will in many cases leave the child with disabilities making an independent life very difficult.
Camille’s Appeal wants to help these wonderful children and their families get as close to a normal life as possible. The focus of the charity is to work closely with the NHS to ensure that each and every child is given the maximum amount of care to lower the risk of disability and to create and improve rehabilitation care across the United Kingdom.
Please help Camille's Appeal through donations, fundraising and awareness create a better life for children with brain tumours.
