Supporting families of children and young
 people with cancer in the East Midlands

We’re very lucky to have an army of supporters here at PASIC and thankfully this hasn’t stopped during the coronavirus pandemic.

Sophie,14 is an absolute inspiration and has shown real entrepreneurial spirit by making and selling face coverings to help raise funds for PASIC.

When Sophie shared what she was doing on Instagram she received an incredible response and has made over 200 face coverings. So far this means Sophie has smashed her target, raising over £1180 for PASIC, and we couldn’t be more grateful for her hard work.  

Mum Sarah is quite rightly very proud and so are we, especially as Sophie is still on treatment for leukaemia. She has recently had a general anaesthetic, lumbar puncture and Chemo flush, but she has not let that slow down production, far from it.

Sophie has enlisted the help of the whole family. The production line is made up of big sister Lucy16 managing orders and social mediatheir younger sister, 9 is turning masks out and threading elastic, Mum Sarah is cutting fabric and ironing and Sophie herself is sewing and packaging orders. 

Sophie knows first-hand how important fundraising is to PASIC, she was diagnosed at aged 14, with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) in November 2018 and is still on treatment. During this challenging time, Sophie and her family have been supported by the team at PASIC with trips such as the Santa train, Twycross Zoo and annual Christmas party and more recently they have received an activity pack during the COVID-19 lockdown. These are all things that enable families to stay connected and have muchneeded fun and exciting experiences. 

If you would like to support Sophie in supporting us, she has huge range of fabulous patterns to choose from. There are adult and child sizes are available, you can pay via PayPal and if needed your order can be posted out to you. It couldn’t be easier, take a look at her Instagram page or drop them an email for more details.
