Thank you for choosing to support Mummy’s Star, the only charity in the UK and Ireland who specifically support women and families where Mum is diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy or within a year of a birth.

The news of a pregnancy or a recent birth is an exciting time for all prospective and existing parents. However, it can be cruelly interrupted by the news of a cancer diagnosis and the worry that this brings to Mum, family and friends. Worse still, this could have also led to the loss of a pregnancy or baby.

Every day 2 women are diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy or shortly after birth.

A cancer diagnosis is difficult at any time, the added pressures of pregnancy, looking after a small baby or grieving loss can be scary and isolating.

That’s where Mummy’s Star comes in.

Mummy’s Star believes that no one should have to go through this alone. We help families to meet others in a similar position, offer small grants to relieve some financial burden, give support to partners and the wider family, promote awareness and support research.

Our dedicated team ensure women and their families have tailored support that is sensitive and specific to their individual needs

We'd love to see a day when cancer and pregnancy are not words used together, but we're here for mums EVERYDAY and working hard to help SUPPORT every family through this extremely traumatic situation. We work directly with families to get the support they need that is as unique as thy are.

The money you raise will help to make a real difference to families

Remember, the more you raise the more we can be there for families when they need us most.
