Emma, mum of Aleesha diagnosed with leukaemia aged 13
Jean's House has everything you could ever wish for and more and it really does feel like a home away from home. It meant Aleesha's sisters and step dad could stay with me at weekends and over Christmas we all got to spend the day together as a family in the home.
How Jean’s House got its name
Always a caring boy, Paul O’Gorman asked his parents, Eddie and Marion to help other children with leukaemia. Paul died aged just 14 and only nine weeks after his initial diagnosis of leukaemia in 1986.
His sister Jean, despite her own battle with cancer, raised funds for children with leukaemia in her brother’s memory. Jean died just nine months later. The O’Gormon family set up Children with Cancer UK charity and made a generous contribution towards Jean’s House which opened in 2018, hence the name.
Paul, Marion and Jean’s names have been given to a number of Young Lives vs Cancer Homes from Home across the UK.
