Lisa, mum of Josh diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma aged 12
Being able to stay at Paul's House was a godsend. It meant we could all be close to Josh, it saved us from having to make the exhausting and expensive 100-mile round trip from home and it also gave us a little breathing space to spend some precious time as a family together.
How Paul’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 Paul’s House which opened in 2010, 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.
