Keep an eye out over the next few weeks for more info, however in the meantime have a read about this amazing charity set up to continue the legacy of a very special person
Finns Foundation is a newly formed charity created in loving memory of Finn McCabe.Finn was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), the most fatal of all brain cancers, in July of 2017 and passed away just short of a year later at 12 years old. DIPG has no known cure and is considered terminal on diagnosis with the average survival time being just 9 months. Finns parents both came out of work to spend time with and care for Finn which put huge financial pressure on the whole family, which is the last thing that any family should have to worry about after being given such devastating news.
Finns Foundation has been created to give cash grants to families of children with newly diagnosed terminal cancer to spend how they see fit – it could be a holiday, gifts for the child or just to take away some of the burden of financial worry that having a child diagnosed as terminally ill inevitably brings; leaving families to concentrate on the things that matter the most like creating memories and spending time with each other.
20% of all donations will go directly to DIPG research in the hope that one day no family will ever have to be told that there is less than 1% chance of there child surviving this devastating cancer.
