When our son Billy was diagnosed with cancer, we experienced personally how Young Lives vs Cancer makes a difference to so many people. We wanted to help make life more bearable for families who live so far away from the hospital, and after chairing a successful appeal, I was delighted when Billy's House opened next to Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham in 2009. We are so pleased that Billy's House continues to provide an escape, by giving families space to regroup and regain strength to get through their battle! We feel proud and privileged to be patrons of such an incredible charity. Thank you Young Lives vs Cancer.
