Family disrupted as youngest has cancer

A family of six have had their world turned upside down by their youngest who is only 7 months old has been diagnosed with cancer.  She is currently an inpatient at hospital and receiving treatment, so the family as they live some distance from the hospital are trying to be there with her as much as they can.  The father was working full-time until his daughter’s diagnosis and has now given up work to be close to her.  They are struggling as a family as their income just about covers their rent and council tax.  Our agents are assisting them in submitting a claim for benefits to help them going forward.  In the meantime they have no money for food and are often going without as they are unable to store food at the hospital.  We agreed to send across £50 to help them out in the short term.
