Marion's house was lovely, it took a lot of pressure off. I wasn’t working, so I wasn’t able to keep up the flat I was living in so my fiancé moved back in with his mum and dad because they’re from Scotland. It was such a transformation so whenever I could get out of hospital at least I had somewhere to go that was safe and clean, and everyone in the house understood

How Marion’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 Marion’s House in Glasgow, 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.
