Sail 4 Cancer
Sail 4 Cancer
Sail 4 Cancer provides respite breaks for families affected by cancer. We provides breaks for young carers, teenagers with cancers and families.
Sail 4 Cancer exists to provide respite to families affected by cancer. Each year the charity provides 500 people living a cancer nightmare the opportunity to get away and spend quality time together as a family. They are given opportunities to go on park or resorts breaks, go sailing, go on riverboat adventures or ocean cruises. We also do this for families who had recently lost someone to cancer to given them a private opportunity to grieve together as a family. In many of the families the diagnosis is terminal and we offer those families a last family holiday of their choice. We have a special project focussed on teenagers with or recovering from cancer who are given the opportunity to go on sailing weekends with a friend or sibling to regain their physical confidence after months in and out of hospitals. We also provide special breaks for youngsters who care for a parent or sibling with cancer. Some of these young carers are only 9 years old and they sacrifice their childhood for the sake of their families. We give the whole family the opportunity to go on a park breaks where the youngsters can just be children and treated like the special little heroes they are. We have a constantly growing waiting list each year due to the prevalence of cancer in our community.
