In one of the most very honest , brave and moving interviews  one of our families share their story and the stark reality of having 2 children with a life limiting condition.

Mum of 2 Susan opens up about how they are managing with caring for their daughter Olivia and son Christan and how the cheque from Cliona’s Foundation meant the world

“I had to stop working. But the bills don’t stop. We fell behind. Everything started adding up, flights, medicine, everything. You can barely put one foot in front of the other, so applying to the bank for help was just not an option. Suddenly, a cheque came in the post and I have never been so grateful.

These people were strangers – they wanted to help us. I was so touched by the generosity and most of all, the dignity that came with it.”
