This World Cancer Day we’re sharing stories of strength, hope, friendship and unity. Brick by brick, we’re building a virtual wall of support. Add to our collection of photos, messages and memories and thank that special someone who helped you through your tough times.
Thank you so much to my absolute best pal, I wouldn’t have been able to get through this without you. Also to the NHS, thank you for everything you have all done you are amazing people the world would be a terrible place without you heroes xx
Let us all concur on cancer that is does not pull us apart, it may attack our body but it cannot weaken our heart. Let's all come together and keep firm in our head that will beat it, as by pulling together we will pull it apart instead.
Just wanted to tell you that you mean the world to me and I can't wait to get out of this shitty lockdown so we can finally go to IKEA and play hide n seek n get pissed. I miss you so fuckin much I can't wait for after lockdown xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
When I was 10 months old my parents saved my life by spotting a rare childhood cancer in my eye a retinoblastoma. If they hadn't detected the white spot and lack of sight in my right eye and rushed me to Moorfields Eye Hospital the cancer could have blinded me and spread to other parts of my body. After my right eye was enucleated special arrangements for all my new prosthetic eyes as I was growing up and my mother would make special visits to my primary school if my eye ever fell out.
Our darling William, we are so proud of you. You never complained when you had treatment for your hepatoblastoma. You never complain now with all your ongoing treatments. You are our hero and we love you with all our hearts. Well done little man, love from nanny and Granddad xxxx
You are the bravest girl I know, and I’m so so proud of you, you have been through so much and still smile through. You are now the most sassy princess the nurses knows, and you did it, you beat cancer! My hero 💜👑
Thank you for always being there for us even when it got tough. When our son was diagnosed with Wilms it honestly felt like the world came crashing down on us and yet you were there for us, even when we didn't know we needed help. Forever grateful
To my gorgeous son and brother Ant, we miss you everyday, you were so positive always life and soul of the party, we still laugh when we think of you, cruelly taken with Ewing’s Sarcoma to early. Forever partying. Paul’s clic house was our home for more than a year. What a lovely place it is forever in our hearts. Xx
My darling neice is such an inspiration to our family she is in remission now from the horrible disease ewing sarcoma. She had such an awful gruelling time all the way through her treatment. I just want her to know we are so proud of her and the strong courageous girl she is lots of love beautiful from auntie denise ❤💖
Sometimes we can’t understand why things happen, or see the way ahead, but one day you’ll look back at everything you’ve been through, and because of it you will be a stronger more positive individual, and be able to help someone else who is going through the same journey by giving them encouragement and positivity
NHL survivor and my own personal hero. There is nothing that this world can throw at you that you cannot handle. Uni is next where a new and exciting chapter will begin. Thinking of all the fighters, survivors and forever children 💛
Maisie, you are the most loving, kind, thoughtful and inspirational daughter. As a toddler you fought ALL and survived without complaint. Now, as an 11 year old girl, you continue to shine and help others in similar circumstances.
You show empathy and thoughtfulness towards the children still fighting and eagerly support the charities when called upon. You inspire us every day and we love you more than words could ever say.
Rory will always be my hero, but I want to dedicate my positivity to his parents Amy and Matt, who despite living through the worst grief imaginable, that no parents should have to face, show such grace and courage supporting others and fund-raising to find cures. They are awesome.
For being so strong and brave during your HL diagnosis and treatment. For carrying on with your GCSE's and your determination that life must carry on.
You, and all the other Teenagers/ Children who sadly have to take the cancer journey - you are all INSPIRATIONAL!
Thank you to the Clic Sargent Team, Oncology Team and Drs and Nurses at Bristol Children's Hospital for all that you have done for us and continue to do for others.
To my inspirational humble daughter, who survived Hodgkin's Lymphoma at the age of 11. You are my hero and I will never forget when you made me a thank you card and present that said 'Thank you for looking after me'. It blew me away. To all those fighting and to all those families who are taking it minute by minute it is ok to do that and DO lean on Clic Sargent they will hold you up.
We are so very proud of how far you have come since your diagnosis of osteosarcoma 14/02/14 just days after your 15th Birthday, 30 weeks of chemotherapy followed by a high level amputation and you always had a smile on your face (well most of the time) you are now 22 and in the final stages of your dream to become a primary school teacher😍😍 you are simply amazing we love you to the moon and stars and back😍😍
For all the young people fighting every day... stay strong, you are so loved and we are all praying for you and hoping for a brighter day tomorrow for you all. Keep smiling your smile gives so much pleasure to all the people who love and care for you.
You are an inspiration to us all xx
You were the best friend I ever had. I regret not always being there for you as you were for me. I’m trying to make up for that by being there for others. Love to you all. Stay strong and when you can’t, talk to someone. Talking always helps. Love and hugs ❤️❤️❤️
My lovely niece Amy,given months to live six years ago and still battling cancer,still drinking,eating chocolate and playing with Lego,had her 40th birthday last month but no party because of coronavirus
I'm full of admiration for everyone who is undergoing treatment for cancer. You are so brave and patient.
Today I pray for you all that God will use everyone you meet to give you love, courage and strength and and if possible, the warmest hug you've ever had. 💝
Andrew you lost your Mum 10 months before you were diagnosed with lymphoma.
We watched you as you went through your treatment sometimes it was hard to watch it was gruelling but you done it and you are into your third year clear.
Staff in hospital were amazing and still keep in touch.
We could never repay them enough.
Hopefully by continuing to support Clic Sergeant it will go a little way.
We thank everyone for the amazing work your do.
Love Madge & Jim McCleary
My ray of sunshine, you are incredible. You are what keeps us all going through these dark times. You are my daily inspiration and I couldn’t be more proud of you! Keep dancing and fighting the fight. I love you to the moon and back xxxx
Dearest Bobbie, you're the most amazing beautiful daughter a mother could want, your positivity & stubbornness got you through that terrible 6th birthday when you were diagnosed with AML & then kept us all going through treatment, transplant, the whole shebang! I put up decorations in your cubicle & you opened your birthday presents strait out of surgery! On Christmas eve! Because you're the Xmas present that gets more amazing every year! Go forth into the world and sock it to em!
We love you so much, you smiled and smiled all the way to ringing your bell. You are such a lovely caring teenager now who we are so proud of. Our thanks go to everyone who cared for her and all the our family, you were the rainbow on our dark days x
Anna, you have had lots to deal with throughout your life so far - ALL, SMA, spinal surgery and lots of other things - but throughout your courage and fight have shine through. You are an amazing person and growing into a lovely young lady.
Sending all my love. 💚💚💚
MY GRANDSON JAKE WAS TREATED IN BRISTOL WITH ALL AND AFTER A RELAPSE HAD A BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT. THE CARE AND SUPPORT HE RECEIVED WAS FABULOUS AND GIVEN THEY LIVE IN CORNWALL THE USE OF THE HOUSE MEANT THAT SOME OF HIS FAMILY COULD BE NEARBY THROUGH MOST OF IT. THE ACTIVITY ORGANISERS MADE LIFE BEARABLE FOR JAKE AND WERE VERY CARING AND UNDERSTANDING. THE WHOLE FAMILY FELT REALLY PART OF THE WHOLE PROCESS. JAKE IS FINE NOW 2 YEARS AFTER THE TRANSPLANT AND 4 YEARS AFTER THE ORIGINAL DIAGNOSIS.
May you all find the strength to overcome your struggles. You will always have the support you need to help win your fight and you will never walk alone. Stay strong in the knowledge that tomorrow will be a good day xx
World Cancer day comes around every year and I take a moment to be reminded of the stress and worry that I remember with such clarity.
I am able to quickly discard any negative feelings as I remember just how strong, determined and funny you were through your cancer journey, and see the amazing person you are today.
I'm glad that your loud, argumentative and sassy and that we both get to experience everything that we do together.
I am proud of you and I always will be.
Love Mum x
It is 30 years since you saved our Son James (Jim) . Our everlasting thanks to Proff Martin Mott, Dr Mike Burgess and the Nurses. Without the help and support of Clic and it's Domiciliary Nurses that year would have been so much more difficult for us all.
Past and present sufferers, please do not let this disease define who you are and what you do. Do not let it dictate your life. Be positive and be strong and create a good support network around you to help you on bad days! Keep smashing it, tomorrows a new day!
You are just amazing. Despite all you have been through you remain so positive, caring and happy. You are always there for others in difficult times. You are not just a survivor but an amazing person. Happy World Cancer day.Xx
You were all amazing when Amber was fighting cancer. You gave us the strength to carry on during the darkest of days. We are so proud of you all. Now I (Mum) am lucky enough to be working for this fantastic charity, it is my turn to give something back and perhaps help others facing the same difficult journey.
Thank you to CLICSargent, for being such a support to all the young people & their families who are going through such a terrible time, & also for keeping we volunteers involved with all that is going on. There are so many young & courageous young people fighting cancer
