Abbie was diagnosed with Adrenal Neuroblastoma when she was 21 months old. She underwent intensive treatment with induction chemotherapy, high dose chemotherapy, stem cell transplant, surgery, radiotherapy and Retinoic acid. Unfortunately, a relapse was diagnosed in June 2005 and she had to undergo yet many more months of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and numerous other invasive and horrendous treatments to try and rid her of this despicable disease. Abbie’s family and friends were all devastated when she finally lost her fight for life in September 2006.

Abbie’s Fund are determined to do their utmost to raise as much money as they can to help other children who are going through the same dreadful journey as Abbie. They intend to raise money for research to help make Neuroblastoma survivable and look into other areas of innovative treatment as well as supporting those children already suffering from this horrendous childhood cancer.

Cherry Trees has for 39 years provided ‘home from home’ short break/respite care for children and young people with severe learning and physical disabilities. They recognise that children are best looked after at home. However, because of their complex special needs these young people require very specialist care often 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is not surprising that from time to time both they and their families need a break

Cherry Trees is a unique place, providing professional care in a safe, stimulating and fun environment, where every child is valued for who they are. It is a community that is dedicated to children and young people, enabling them to spend time with friends and enjoy new experiences and opportunities. The children must be safe, happy and properly cared for when they are away from home or their parents may never relax. Cherry Trees provides this vital care.
