With the clocks going back, I can’t help but think how precious time is. When my two-year-old daughter Nevaeh was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2009, I desperately tried to cling on to every hour, afraid of what the future might bring.

Throughout everything my family has been through, one charity understood. Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity truly knows how to support families who are caring for a seriously ill child.

My family’s wonderful Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker, Lyn, helped us with the practical challenges of juggling a very ill child alongside everyday life. She also helped us emotionally to cope with the unimaginable situation we found ourselves in and gave us precious time together as a family.

As Nevaeh celebrates over five years of being cancer free, please support Rainbow Trust’s ‘Big Hour Campaign’ to make the most of your extra hour now the clocks have gone back, by donating an hour of your wages, or holding a 60-minute fundraiser. An hour of support from Rainbow Trust can make all the difference. Trust me, I know.
