Thomas' stolen Christmas

Thomas is only four years old, but has still never truly experienced the magic and wonder of Christmas. 

That’s because his first Christmas came shortly after a devastating diagnosis of a brain tumour.

“He was really ill. It was heartbreaking to see my baby like that, I just wanted to hold him. We tried to bring him home for Christmas but it wasn’t the same.”

The following year was not much better for tiny Thomas. Now undergoing chemotherapy, he was too weak and too sick to celebrate. He wasn’t even able to spend time with his siblings due to the risk of infection.

Just as Thomas began to come out of the woods in 2018, his granny died. For a family in need of a chance to share a special time together, Christmas was, once again, a time of sadness.
