My diagnosis of breast cancer when I was 42 resulted in a course of chemotherapy and a mastectomy, followed by more chemotherapy and radiotherapy in the months afterwards. As a mother of two children and a wife, I felt totally overwhelmed by my situation, and didnât really know where to turn. By chance, I came across the Cancer Information Centre at the BRI, which is jointly run by the hospital and Cancer Support. There, I realised that there was a whole range of services, some practical, some personal, to help me with my situation. I was able to get advice â I didnât even realise I might be entitled to any help with access to benefits, but an adviser guided me through the process. I liked the fact that this help was available over the phone â I didnât always want to smothered by people helping out. I also benefited from some lovely complementary therapy sessions, which were lovely and girly, and made me feel myself again, just for a while. Talking to the therapist about my feelings, fears and inner pain was so helpful. There are things you just canât talk about with your family and friends. I felt so isolated initially, and I really donât know how I could have coped without Cancer Support Bradford and Airedale. Now I really do feel that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and with their support I am now getting on with my life.

Wonderful work. The profile, knowledge and understanding of childhood cancer has significantly increased since the Little Heroes charity was established. They have raised Â£thousands to help those impacted by this illness locally and wider afield. Such passion, dedication and perseverance should be rewarded... so please give generously in support of this cause and to help the families that need support at such a traumatic time.

My son benefited from this charity. I am a one-parent family and struggled to cope and found that he was truanting from school, getting into trouble and mixing with the wrong people. He had very little education and didnt see the point of working. The support he received at Pitstop, the practical activities and encouragement he got from the team gave him the chance to see that he is capable of learning new skills and that opportunities are there for him if he works at it.
