This is a new case that we have accepted. Below is an excerpt from the family friend. We need you help today! 

She needs our help compassion cant wait. Donate today!!

 A friend of ours has a son who is 20 and has recently been diagnosed with osteosarcoma.  He has been moved between two hospitals locally (in Hastings) and London, and is soon to be moved to London again.  His mother has two other young children of 4 and 6 to look after and is a single parent.  She is finding it difficult financially as the cost of travel to hospitals out of the area is considerable and she has recently had to stay in a hotel in London to be near her son.  As he is not on a children's ward there is no provision for overnight accommodation for parents of his age group.   She is trying to apply for benefits for him, but the forms are considerable and this is taking some time to organise and as she has a son in hospital and other children to look after it is hard to find the time to get all the forms filled in that need to be done.  In addition, it is difficult finding someone to tell her what exactly she is entitled to apply for.

He will soon go to a specialist orthopaedic hospital in Stanmore, Middlesex where there are 7 rooms which can be paid for within the hospital at a cost of £25 per night. If she is unable to secure one of these the hospital provides a list of B&B's locally but these are obviously more expensive than those rooms within the hospital.
