About Saras Hope Foundation.
The importance of rebuilding family relationships after being effected by cancer is something Sara’s parents Ged and Julie know all too well. After Saras treatment the family were able to go on a holiday as a family to reprieve all of the stress and worry they had endured. After Sara passed away in 2001 aged only 16 her parents dedicated themselves to set the charity up in her memory, honouring her love for holidays, spending quality time with her family and the Greek islands.
Spending even a week away from hospital appointments and having the chance to relax and rebuild life after diagnosis has proved to make a significant difference to the lives of the children and the families having to live with the devastating impact that cancer brings. Saras Hope Foundation is there at the end of their cancer journey to help reconnect families and relax after all they have been through.
Our overall mission is to give families from the UK, affected by the devastating impact of cancer, a much needed break from long hospital stays, traumatic medical procedures and cancer related treatments – so that they may spend quality time together recuperating and enjoying life as a ‘normal’ family – strengthening relationships and creating lasting happy memories.
In many cases the surgery and treatment can leave the child / teenager with life changing additional medical problems such as severe learning and physical disabilities (including loss of limbs). Problems with lung, kidney, hearing, memory loss and mobility. It can also leave psychological problems, lack of confidence and low self-esteem.
We are dedicated to giving a personal service to each child/young person and their family, and in memory of Sara, giving them ‘smiles, hope and precious memories’.
