This fund is here to provide sources of awareness, information and support for children
and adults after any diagnosis that is not a heart related condition (see LRMF).
Medical science has advanced a great deal in recent times, resulting in many more
people surviving a variety of serious conditions for longer than they may have done previously.
However, there are many diagnoses where the outcome is often unknown or entirely life
changing; examples such as cancer or muscular dystrophy come with pre-conceived ideas
of dying along with a range of different thoughts and feelings for everyone involved.
Many people feel uneasy talking about their feelings for a number of reasons and
we are here to attempt to help change some of these barriers and make a difference
in peoples lives.
The resources we offer include: ¬ a space to communicate with others;
¬ a large range of books about cancer;
¬ books about a range of other diagnoses; ¬ reference books that help understand
your body may not be working properly and ¬ an opportunity to be involved in publishing
