What We Do
Cancer does not define who Jordan is in our hearts. Jordan had such an awesome personality and it is this, and her love of life, that drives us to help other families supporting their children, in her name.
Currently, we work with the Teenage and Young Adult representative at Hospitals across the East and West Midlands to identify families who have a need for our support and offer grants of up to £150 per family.
WHAT DO OUR GRANTS HELP WITH?
Here are just a few examples of the things our grants could help families with during their difficult journeys:
Food and shopping during hospital stays
Support for siblings including childcare
Equipment and clothes
Overnight costs for the family so they can stay near the hospital
Take the first point - Transport costs. You might not think that helping with transport costs is a big deal but the number of miles some families build up is ridiculous!
The families Jordan's Weeones help are from all over the UK. The nature and severity of their child's illness mean that they have numerous appointments, treatments and surgeries that span over weeks, months and even years. Not all families live near the hospitals that provide the specialist treatment these children need, so this kind of travel can be a big financial hit on families.
The same goes for car parking fees, associated overnight stays and food costs for the families, all so they can be close to their child.
The money we provide makes a huge difference and the more support we can get, the more families we can help. Please take a look at the 'Support Us' tab on our menu for some of the different ways in which you can help.
