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

I became part of the PASIC team in February 2015, but I have been aware of PASIC for some time as in 2001 my eight year old son Thomas was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, at Queens Medical Centre Nottingham, so I can totally relate to the fears and emotions that parents/carers experience when they have a child with cancer, and the huge ripple effect this has on the whole family and their friends.

Before I joined PASIC I worked for nine years at a senior school as a Pastoral Support Assistant, meeting the needs of the students on a daily basis. I have also volunteered as a Support Worker for Cruse  Bereavement Care and also Treetops Family Bereavement Team, as part of a counselling qualification.

I feel extremely privileged to be part of PASIC and the amazing team we have, and to able to offer our help and support in so many different ways to our amazing families, is an absolute joy!
