Today we are so excited to inform you all that we have teamed up with the amazing guys over at The Rainbow Trust, who have kindly agreed to accept 30 of our kits.
As you know our aim here at Little Heroes Comics is to offer children fighting illnesses a moment of reprieve from the day to day worries of living with the illness and the treatment that comes with this.
The rainbow trust enables us to do this by getting our kits into the hands of those who are living with their conditions at home.
We are so excited with this trial run for The Rainbow Trust and hope that we can continue with providing them with more and more kits to reach the thousands of children they help support on a daily basis.
We will keep you updated with pictures as and when we receive them so please do keep coming back.
The Rainbow Trust supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years with a life-threatening or terminal illness and need the bespoke support they offer.
Today there are an estimated 49,000 children and young people in the UK living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition who may require palliative care (University of Leeds, 2011). Many of these children and their families are able to cope or are not in a ‘crisis situation’. However, thousands of families have to face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day to day basis.
