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

Our team

Our staff team is based in Nottingham and Leicester but the work we do reaches out to families all over the East Midlands to make sure we’re doing the best we can for families living with childhood cancer. Do get in touch if you have any queries, would like support or would like to support PASIC!


Louise Towse

CEO
I joined PASIC in 2015. I'm passionate about supporting families of children with cancer and raising awareness about childhood cancer and its impact. My daughter Rose was treated for Neuroblastoma at Nottingham Children’s Hospital so I understand the difficulties facing families and just how vital a lifeline PASIC is when times are tough. I’m excited about building relationships with supporters in the local community and developing the role of volunteers so PASIC can increase the help we offer and provide the best service possible moving forward. Do get in touch if you can help us in any way, or if you simply want to know more about our work.

Harriet Bettany

Marketing & Fundraising Officer
I joined PASIC at the start of 2021 in the newly formed role of Marketing and Fundraising Officer. I have a background in charity comms and a passion for marketing, social media and storytelling. The digital world is growing faster than ever and PASIC recognises the important role it plays in the provision of support, information and friendship to the families of children with cancer. In my role I aim to highlight the incredible work of PASIC and the amazing resilience of families living with cancer. I hope to raise awareness of the issues faced, while promoting fundraising, events and news. But most importantly, I believe in using the power of social media to ensure that no family faces cancer alone!

Joanna Beaumont

Family Support Worker
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!

Toria Pick

Leicester Family Support Worker
I live in Loughborough with my incredible husband Adam and beautiful three year old daughter Elisabeth. I joined the PASIC team in April 2020 after working for 12 years on the care team at Rainbows Hospice For Children and Young Adults. I’ve always been passionate about caring for others and wanted to use my skills gained there to specialise in oncology in some way. PASIC has given me that opportunity and I have never looked back, such an incredible team and absolutely amazing families!
