Who we are
Thank You for visiting our fundraising page!
forAva Foundation supports children, young people & their families who have a cancer diagnosis and/or a condition that requires them to undergo a Bone Marrow or Stem Cell Transplant at Royal Manchester & Alder Hey Children's Hospitals.
Inspired by our own family journey through childhood cancer, we raise money to fund 'Be There' boxes and bags.
Our boxes contain treats, games, crafts, pyjamas & essentials to help support children & their families during stem cell transplant in isolation, but most importantly to let them know that people are thinking of them and they are not alone.
Our bags will be used to support children with cancer who are in hospital for shorter periods but are still in isolation. They contain toys, games and crafts to help distract and entertain them.
We aim to Be There for as many families as we can who are going through such a devastating time and to ease the isolation they may feel when spending such long periods in hospital.

- organising your own fundraiser using Virgin Money Giving to collect any donations on your behalf (click "Start Fundraising" or "Events")
